Don't Face Sex Offense Charges Without a Lawyer
Allegations of sexual assault, child molestation, possession of child porn and other sex crimes may have very serious consequences. An arrest can damage your reputation forever. A conviction can impact your job, your personal relationships and your family life. Even if you serve no jail time, you could be subject to lifetime registration as a sex offender.
If charged with a sex crime, do not answer questions or discuss your conduct with anyone but your attorney. At Jacobs & Dow in New Haven, Connecticut, our lawyers are here to protect your reputation and your future. Call 203-772-3100 for a free initial consultation.
Defending Students Accused of Sexual Assault
New Haven is a center for higher education. Yale University, Southern Connecticut State University, Albertus Magnus College, Gateway Community College, Quinnipiac University, the Paier College of Art and The University of New Haven are located either in New Haven or in neighboring communities.
Students accused of sexual misconduct involving another student may be subject to an investigation by their university. This investigation can lead to discipline up to and including expulsion. It can also result in criminal charges for offenses that happened long ago and were never reported to the police. If convicted, the student could be subject to prison time, a criminal record and lifetime registration as a sex offender.
If you are accused of sexual misconduct involving another student, you need a lawyer as soon as possible.

Sexual assault cases involving children often become high-profile cases. Public officials strongly pressure law enforcement and prosecutors to make a quick arrest. Persons charged with sexual assault need a strong legal advocate, both in the courtroom and in the media.
The police increasingly prosecute those who download and distribute child pornography. All sex offenses — from sexual assault to child porn and child molestation — may lead to significant prison sentences.
