Sexual Offenses


Sex crimes are some of the most serious, life-altering cases our firm handles. If you have been charged with rape, sexual battery, solicitation, lewd conduct, pandering, indecent exposure, child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, sexual exploitation, electronically furnishing obscene material to minors, or aggravated sodomy in Fresno County, you should contact the Law Office of Scott levy right away to ensure that your rights are being aggressively defended. Our firm has nearly 30 years of combined experience successfully defending the rights of clients accused of serious crimes, including sex crimes.

Each year there are countless cases of individuals wrongfully accused of and charged with sexual offenses in California. In these situations, it is very important that you secure the representation of an aggressive lawyer who is skilled in sex crime law and that will be able to use evidence to support your good character and show the ulterior motives of your accuser.

Many of sexual abuse cases involve false allegations, and some cases involve deliberate lies by children, jealous ex-girlfriends, ex-wives, step-parents, or other persons with feelings of personal animosity. However, because of the animosity and abhorrence society attaches to sexual abuse, anyone alleged to have committed a sex crime often faces terrible consequences. A person's life can be completely devastated when they are charged and/or convicted of a sex crime. The ruinous fallout from these types of charges can detrimentally affect the personal and professional relationships of the individual. Seeking the advice of legal counsel immediately can only help in reaching a resolution of your case and getting your life back on track.

Listed below are some California sex crimes which may result in severe penalties, misdemeanor or felony charges, monetary fines, and mandatory sex offender registration:

  • Rape– This is a serious crime in which one individual uses force, violence, or fear to sexually penetrate a victim against his or her will
  • Sexual Battery– This sex crime occurs when, for sexual arousal, a person touches the intimate part of another individual against his or her will
  • Solicitation– Solicitation is a crime in which one person pays for or offers an incentive to another individual for sex. Many times people are arrested for solicitation during undercover sting operations when a police officer poses as a prostitute, then arrests the suspected solicitor
  • Lewd Conduct– This crime takes place in a public place when one person inappropriately touches or grabs another person’s buttocks, genitals, or breasts for the purpose of gratification, sexual arousal, annoyance or offense
  • Pandering– A person commits the offense of pandering when one solicits a person to perform an act of prostitution in one’s own behalf or in behalf of a third person or when one knowingly assembles persons at a fixed place for the purpose of being solicited by others to perform an act of prostitution
  • Indecent Exposure/Public Indecency– This crime occurs when a person commits: 1) an act of sexual intercourse, 2) a lewd exposure of sexual organs, 3) a lewd appearance in a state of partial or complete nudity, or 4) a lewd caress or indecent fondling of the body of another person in a public place
  • Child Molestation– This is defined as any immoral or indecent act to or in the presence of or with any child under the age of 16 years with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of either the child or the person. Aggravated child molestation is further defined as any act of child molestation which includes an act of sodomy or intercourse
  • Enticing a Child for Indecent Purposes– This offense is defined as taking or soliciting a child under the age of sixteen years to any place whatsoever for the purpose of child molestation or other indecent acts
  • Sexual Exploitation of Children– It is unlawful to use, employ, persuade, induce, use, entice or coerce any minor to engage in or assist any other person to engage in any sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing any visual medium depicting such conduct
  • Electronically Furnishing Obscene Material to Minors– If one knows or has good reason to know the character of the material furnished, the person electronically furnishes to an individual whom the person knows or should have known is a minor any picture, photograph, etc. of a person or a portion of the human body which depicts sexual conduct, nudity or abuse which is harmful to minors, or any written or aural matter that contains such material and taken as a whole lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value and incites prurient interest instead
  • Aggravated Sodomy– a person commits the act of aggravated sodomy when he/she forces another person against their will, or a child of less than ten years of age, to engage in oral or anal sex

Other aspects of your life are affected greatly with possible consequences such as:

  • Damage to reputation
  • Social disgrace
  • Loss of parental rights
  • Loss of voting rights
  • Loss of friends/family
  • Electronic monitoring or home confinement
  • Loss of employment opportunities
  • Mandatory counseling or treatment
  • Register as a sex offender with State and local law enforcement for the rest of your life

You deserve a strong, aggressive defense against any charge of rape, accusation of child pornography, or arrest for any type of sexual assault. Even if family and friends turn their backs on you, Criminal Defense Attorney Scott Levy will stand by your side and vigorously defend your rights and your freedom.
