Child Molestation Charges in Riverside

Riverside Criminal Defense Lawyer

Molestation occurs when an individual touches a child under 14 for the purposes of sexual arousal, either of that individual or the child. It can take any form which fits within that definition. This is distinct from sexual penetration with someone older than 14 but younger than 18, which is known as statutory rape. California levels harsh penalties for child molestation and even a first time offender can find himself or herself in prison for decades. For this reason, it is imperative that you contact a Riverside criminal attorney if you have been accused of child molestation.

At Grech & Packer, we will immediately go into action on your behalf. As specific types of child molestation charges can be filed as either misdemeanors or felonies, we do what we can in an attempt to negotiate the lesser charge. This in itself can have a significant impact on your future. We then go about investigating your case and preparing the best defense strategy. Having previously held the position of Deputy District Attorney for Riverside County, Attorney Paul Grech knows how the prosecution thinks and operates and can act accordingly.

Consequences of Molestation Accusations in Riverside, CA

Tragically, just being accused of child molestation can ruin one's reputation before a trial even begins. One's career and relationships can be destroyed. If one is convicted, there are severe consequences besides the penalties issued in court. One faces lifetime sex offender registration, and adverse effects on one's ability to gain employment or housing. Certain civil rights can be compromised and the social stigma of such a crime is attached to one for a long time.

With so much at stake, it is vital you have legal representation that can deal with your case swiftly, thoroughly and competently. We are all too aware that false accusations of child molestation occur. It can happen that a child has been influenced by another adult, possibly in a custody battle or for some other motive.
