Let Fredericksburg Criminal Defense Lawyers help you with your case.

Police and prosecutors in Virginia aggressively go after defendants suspected of alleged sex crimes, and are often under intense pressure to secure convictions in sex crime cases. For those men and women who find themselves the target of a sex-related criminal charge in Virginia, it can be easy to feel that everyone is against you in condemning you and seeking harsh criminal penalties without taking the time to understand the actual events that occurred.

At Kurylo Gold & Josey, PLC in Fredericksburg, our experienced criminal defense attorneys are dedicated to making sure our clients receive the best possible representation and protection of their constitutional rights, no matter the criminal charge. Whatever your circumstances are and whatever reputational and criminal challenges you are facing, we can provide robust, non-judgmental representation in helping you to navigate all pending sex-related criminal charges and investigations in Virginia.

Presenting Your Best Defense to Virginia Sex Crime Charges

From having worked with defendants in criminal cases across the spectrum, we understand that the public shaming and scrutiny that comes with a sex-related criminal investigation can be overwhelming, and there is a temptation to simply give in as the idea of mounting a strong defense can seem too challenging.

But when you work with our experienced, unbiased, and aggressive criminal defense team, we will take the lead for you in your time of extreme stress and anxiety by managing all aspects of your defense to help you avoid or mitigate harsh criminal penalties, including being placed on sex offender registries.

Our robust defense of your rights and interests includes speaking with all investigators on your behalf, diligently defending your constitutional rights, investigating and compiling all evidence that contradicts the prosecution’s case against you, calling into question the sufficiency of the evidence that has been and may be presented against you, and working with prosecutors to reach the best possible outcome in your case, whether in the form of a mitigated penalty, reduced charges, a dropped investigation, or not guilty verdict.
