Knox County Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

Campbell County Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys

Lawyer Defends Clients Facing Charges of Rape, Sexual Assault, and Prostitution in Knoxville

When you or someone you love is facing charges related to a sex crime, you need legal help immediately. Sex crimes are some of the most serious offenses in the realm of criminal law, and the consequences could affect the rest of your life. If you are convicted, you will likely face a lengthy prison sentence, expensive fines, and possibly registration on the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry.

At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we realize that the stigma of a sex crime can create the assumption that anyone accused of such an offense must be guilty. Your professional and personal representation could be ruined even before any evidence has been presented. Our compassionate defense lawyer firmly believes in the principle of innocent until proven guilty, especially when it comes to sex crimes. We understand the stakes, and we will provide the aggressive defense that you deserve.

Anderson County Counsel for Sex-Based Offenses

Attorney William Evans is an experienced trial attorney who understands that many sex crime cases are won or lost before court proceedings even begin. When you contact our firm, we will go right to work in investigating the allegations against you, the circumstances of your arrest, and how you have been treated by police and prosecutors. Our team will examine evidence, talk with potential witnesses, and help you explore your legal options.

We have the knowledge and skill to offer guidance when you have been charged with:

  • Rape, including aggravated rape and statutory rape
  • Sexual battery, including aggravated sexual battery and sexual battery by an authority figure
  • Criminal sexual conduct and other sex crimes involving a child victim
  • Child pornography, including the possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Prostitution and soliciting prostitution

With the exception of prostitution and soliciting prostitution, most sex crimes in Tennessee are prosecuted as felony offenses. The specific penalties associated with a conviction will depend on the nature of the offense, as well as the age and other characteristics of the victim, but they generally include long prison sentences and the potential for lifetime registration as a sex offender.

Sex Crime Lawyer Who Will Fight for You

In today’s world, an allegation that a sex crime has occurred puts enormous public pressure on the police to make an arrest and on prosecutors to secure a conviction. Prosecuting a sex crime, however, is a complex undertaking, and many such cases come down to one person’s word against that of someone else. At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we realize there are always at least two sides to a story. When you have been accused of a sex crime, you have the right to present your case. Our team will work closely with you in questioning the validity or accuracy of witness statements, the admissibility of evidence, and the appropriateness of techniques used by prosecutors and law enforcement. Charges of sex crimes require an attentive, aggressive response immediately upon your arrest, and we are equipped to offer the assistance you need.
