Sex Offenses

Crimes involving sexual assault, rape and child pornography are frequently the most difficult cases to handle. In Minnesota, these are typically known as Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) crimes and the consequences can absolutely be as severe as any murder case. Because of many recent sentencing changes, even people with an absolutely perfect record could face years and years in prison and be required to register as a sexual offender for the rest of their lives. Experience is critical in cases like these because the pressure to prosecute is extensive. I believe with confidence that the before and after of a CSC conviction can be stark.

One of the most difficult aspects of these cases is that people see these charges as the worst of the worst and that this perceptions extends to juries and the Judges. As a result, sentencing guidelines and sometimes the sentences themselves can be extraordinarily difficult. Trying cases like these in front of juries takes extraordinary care and experience. People have a tendency to demonize very very quickly and the effort to humanize and make sure that they approach these cases correctly is not something every lawyer can do. Jack has successfully done this.

If you or a loved one are facing a charge like this, give Jack a all and sit down to discuss it. He will not judge you, he will defend you. Also, if this is happening during the investigation phase, it may be even more critical to sit down with Jack. He has stepped in in multiple cases pre-charge and has seen multiple cases never charged out as a result.
