Las Vegas Sex Crimes Defense Attorney
Sex crimes are, by nature, some of the most delicate and difficult crimes to defend against. Whether guilt can be proven often turns on the specific circumstances and intentions of everyone involved, and often the allegations alone can have lasting consequences for the accused. Even simply being accused of a sex crime can cause a high degree of social stigma. Moreover, some sex crimes can be punished as or more severely than some murders, and convictions carry additional consequences beyond heavy fines and significant prison terms. Generally, those convicted of sex crimes will have to register as a sex offender in Nevada, which can lead to problems securing employment or housing and affect related legal issues such as child custody.
For these reasons, the consequences of a sex crime conviction in Nevada can lead to a very difficult life, perhaps even more so than nearly any other type of criminal conviction.

Consequences of a Sex Crime Conviction in Las Vegas
Sex crimes are misdemeanors or felonies of a sexual nature, including everything from lewd conduct or harassment to forcible rape. Sex crime convictions can carry heavy fines and long prison terms. Those convicted of the most serious sex crimes can face up to life in prison. Additionally, being convicted of a sex crime in Nevada generally means you will have to register as a sex offender.

- Limited housing options
- Inability to own a firearm
- Difficulty or inability to get a conviction expunged
Building Your Defense
Adrian Marie Lobo has the experience and dedication to fully build your case and put together the best defense possible. A good defense requires knowing how to investigate the facts surrounding your arrest and working within those facts to craft an appropriate defense, including retaining the best investigators and expert witnesses when necessary. Moreover, you should not wait for formal charges to be filed before starting to build your defense. A good defense requires aggressive, independent investigation from the start.
Many sex crime charges stem from mistaken identity, false accusations, or even innocent misunderstandings. In such cases, we will work with you to obtain the information needed to establish your innocence. Common defenses to sex crimes also include that no sexual contact occurred, that the sex was consensual, that the defendant had the honest and reasonable belief that the sex was consensual, or that there is insufficient evidence to prove guilt.
