Sex offenses are punished harshly, including the possibility of years in prison and lifetime sex offender registration. No matter what the allegations, the police must honor your constitutional rights and the prosecution must prove its case. Don’t say a word without talking to a lawyer first.
The Law Offices of Jodi Zils Gagne, LLC, will stand up for your rights and provide a vigorous defense if you are charged with a sex crime. Based in Bristol, our legal team practices in Hartford County and adjoining counties of Central Connecticut.
Hartford Attorney For Possession Of Child
Pornography And Other Sex Offenses
Jodi Zils Gagne is an experienced criminal defense lawyer with experience in state and federal courts. She provides diligent representation for all sex crime allegations, including:
- Sexual assault
- Date rape
- Statutory rape (sex with a minor)
- Risk of injury to a minor (molestation)
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Internet solicitation of a minor (or undercover cop)
- Soliciting a prostitute (online or in person)
Under the law, the authorities must prove that a crime occurred and they must prove intent. That is not always cut-and-dried when the alleged victim is a young child or the alleged offense involved the Internet. Did you intentionally download illegal images? Did others have access to your computer? Is the victim’s story credible and consistent? Did sex crime investigators ask leading questions? Was the search warrant valid?
Your Future Is At Stake
Ms. Gagne will exhaust your defenses to get charges dismissed, to exclude evidence or to gain leverage for negotiations with the prosecutor. We will do everything possible to prevent a felony conviction, to spare you from prison, or to prevent registering as a sex offender. In these high-stakes cases, you may have to decide between going to trial or negotiating a plea to a lesser offense. Either way, we will give you honest legal assessment and position you for the most favorable outcome.
We understand that the mere allegation of sex crimes can affect your freedom, your family, your reputation and your future. If you are accused of molestation or any offense, talk to our Bristol sex crimes defense attorney immediately.
