Ocean Springs Sex Crime Attorneys

If you have been charged with a sex crime, it can feel like the world is against you. Accusers, family members, law enforcement and prosecutors may all be pushing for your conviction. During this difficult time, it's important to find someone who will be on your side and stand up for your legal rights. This is what you will find when you work with the criminal defense attorneys at Ellis Law Firm.

At our law firm, we provide respectful and discrete representation for your sensitive legal matter. Our lawyers are here to protect your rights, not to pass judgment. Our lawyers truly understand that just because you were charged with a sexual crime, it does not mean that you are guilty. We are here to listen to your side of the story, find holes in the prosecutor's case, and obtain the necessary evidence to help you mitigate the consequences of the charge.

We Defend Against A Wide Range Of Criminal Sexual Charges

Now more than ever, you need skilled legal representation. Consequences for the conviction of a sex crime can be severe, including extended prison time. In addition, regardless of the nature of the alleged sex crime or the type of charge you face, if you are convicted, you will face mandatory registration on the sex offenders list. This is not optional, and you will remain on the registry for life.

Those who are registered sex offenders can face an incredibly difficult life, including social stigma, notification of neighbors as to your status, and in some states you may be required to place signage in your yard identifying you as a sex offender. Even after jail time, probation and post-release supervision, your debt to society is seemingly never repaid. With a lifetime inclusion on the sex offenders registry, you are never through with punishment.

But there is hope. Contact our law firm to learn how we can defend you against any type of sexual offense charge, including:

  • Rape and statutory rape
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Child molestation
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Distribution of child pornography
  • Indecent exposure
  • Sodomy

Failing To Register As A Sex Offender In Biloxi, Mississippi

While failing to register as a sex offender is not a sexual offense in of itself, it is none the less a very serious crime. Whether you never completed the initial registration, or you neglected to inform the appropriate authorities of a job, employment or address change, you may face serious consequences, including up to 10 years in prison. Unfortunately, prosecutors are not sympathetic towards sex offenders who don't understand the rules and requirements of registering— that's why you need our help. We are highly skilled in creating credible defenses and negotiating with prosecutors for favorable outcomes. Contact us to learn more.
