Child Molestation

Child Molestation Lawyer in Riverside

Defending Against Child Molestation Charges in California

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 child molestation defense attorney if you have been accused of child molestation.

At Law Offices of 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.
