Defending Minnesotans Accused of Sex Crimes

Being accused of a sex crime can be devastating. Even if you are never convicted, you can lose your job, your friends and your family. It can ruin your relationships. Being convicted of a sex crime is even worse. After you complete your sentence, you may be required to register as a sex offender, which can make it difficult to find a job or a place to live.

If you have been accused of any sex-related crime in the Minneapolis- St. Paul area or elsewhere in Minnesota, it is important to speak to a skilled criminal defense attorney who understands how to fight these charges effectively. I am crime defense lawyer Justin Schiks. I have defended countless clients charged with all types of sex crimes, including:

  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Criminal sexual conduct
  • Statutory rape
  • Prostitution or solicitation
  • Juvenile sex crimes
  • Indecent exposure and lewd conduct
  • Internet sex crimes
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Molestation

Anyone can be falsely accused of a sex crime, including teachers, coaches, youth workers, ministers, and juveniles. Sadly, many alleged sex crimes are fabrications presented as truth by individuals in an attempt to manipulate or victimize another. Some circumstances may be a case of “he said, she said,” others may involve an accuser whose memory of events cannot be accepted as fact.

Finding the Weaknesses in the Case Against You

Sex crimes often come down to the quality of the police work and the strength of the evidence against you. As an experienced trial lawyer, I am skilled in finding weaknesses in both parts of the prosecution’s case.

I will work to achieve a positive outcome. In some instances, this may mean negotiating to get the charges against you reduced or the case dismissed. In other cases, I may recommend that we take your case before a jury. In all instances, I will consult with you about strategy and keep you informed of developments in your case.

Clients accused of sexual offenses have told me they appreciated that I treated them with respect. I don’t judge my clients. I treat them with courtesy and dignity, no matter what allegations have been made against them.— Attorney Justin Schiks
