Sex crime defense cases are given the utmost personal attention because a conviction carries potentially long prison sentences and years of registration as a sex offender. The societal stigma associated with sex crimes can be even more damaging, leading to loss of employment, estrangement from family and even difficulty finding housing. American culture has created a witch hunt atmosphere for those accused of sex crimes; you will have to face hostile prosecutors and harsh public opinion. No one needs a sophisticated New Orleans criminal defense legal team more than someone charged with a sex crime.
Sex crimes defense in New Orleans requires a very aggressive, sophisticated defense strategy backed by extensive investigation and trial preparation by a defense team. The prosecution must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt - a very high standard of proof. Ms. Carpenter has a great deal of experience and success in casting doubt on presumptions of guilt. As a Sex Crimes Defense Attorney in Louisiana, Ms. Carpenter's goal is to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.
