Defending Those Accused Of Domestic Violence Or Sex Crimes

At the Law Office of Jack Kotchick, we have seen many people who have had their entire world turned upside down due to the allegations of domestic violence or sex crimes. Our attorney, Jack Kotchick, has over three decades of experience on both sides of criminal law, working as a prosecutor on felony cases before defending those accused of crimes.

We want you to know that if you have been charged with any of these offenses, it is up to you to build a strong defense to protect your rights. Prosecutors are not going to do this for you. You need someone on your side to help you fight back, and we will work hard to minimize the potential consequences you may be facing.

Understanding Domestic Violence Charges

These cases involve individuals who have some sort of close relationship with one another. Often, they arise out of disputes between spouses or with significant others. When the police are called in these incidents, New York law may require them to make an arrest. If the officer believes the story against you, you are most likely headed to jail.

After the arrest, it is likely that a restraining order will be put in place, prohibiting any contact with the individual who accused you of the offense. This means you may have to find a new place to live, and you might be prevented from seeing your children. It can cause you to lose your job, and make your life much more complicated.

If you are charged with domestic violence, take action as soon as possible. We can immediately get started on preparing a defense strategy that helps you protect what is most important to you.

What You Need To Know About Sex Crimes

The most important fact to be aware of regarding sex crimes concerns the fact that being convicted of one of these crimes may result in you having to register as a sex offender. The registration requirements may even last the rest of your life, making it impossible for you to move on after paying your debt to society.

We offer skilled and knowledgeable representation in a host of different sex crimes cases, including:

  • Sexual assault, or rape
  • Sex with a minor, or statutory rape
  • Prostitution or solicitation of a prostitute
  • Child pornography and other internet sex crimes
  • Failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements

It is not uncommon for these cases to have an extremely high-profile in the media. You will be facing a very uphill battle to clear your name, and it is important for you to reach out to us as soon as you learn of these charges. Never talk to anyone about your case until you have an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.
