Sex Crimes

Sometimes all it takes is an accusation that leads to one of the most challenging and emotional battles that a person could ever face.  Sex crimes are different from other types of criminal cases in every way.  From the minute a call is made to police, or an accusation is made to some other authority, assumptions begin to be made about the accused.  The police seem to care more about a sex crime investigation, which can often lead to extreme bias in a decision to make an arrest.  State prosecutors often become emotionally invested in a sex crime prosecution, which can lead to unfair handling of the case.  Even judges can be biased when it comes to presiding over a sex case.  The challenges that a defendant faces are immense, and the stakes could not be higher.  This is exactly why every defendant must have the most skilled and confident representation possible.  The Maryland sex crime lawyers at The Herbst Firm have actual experience representing defendants charged with some of the most serious sexual offenses, and we know what it takes to prepare a successful defense.  The challenges are unique but we understand what is ahead, and we always fight vigorously for our clients from start to finish to achieve the best possible outcome.  Baltimore sex crimes lawyer Benjamin Herbst will fight tirelessly to assure your right are protected, and will not hesitate to put accusers on the witness stand and vigorously cross examine them in front of a jury.

Anyone who is arrested or is even being investigated for a sex crime will understand that cards are already stacked against him or her.  It is not only police and prosecutors that make assumptions about a sex crime defendant, but also friends and even family as well.  Being charged with a sexual offense is a battle both in a out of the courtroom, and it is absolutely imperative to have someone in your corner no matter what the accusations may be to protect your freedom and your reputation.  We have seen first hand just how damaging a simple accusation can be to a defendant.  In most cases, police will hesitate to make an arrest when the only evidence that is initially presented is an accusation.  But in a sex case, police will hesitate to not make an arrest.  This is just the reality of defending a sex case, and you have to have a lawyer that understands this, and is ready to take on these challenges.  Defending a sex case requires that a defense lawyer be totally committed to achieving the best possible result for the client regardless of what it takes.  You cannot afford to retain a lawyer that is afraid to prepare a vigorous cross examination of a sympathetic victim.  The Constitution affords all defendants the right to competent and effective counsel, and this is never more important that in defending a sex crime.  Baltimore sex crimes lawyer Benjamin Herbst has successfully handled rape charges, sexual abuse of a minor, 3rd degree sex offense and 4th degree sex offense cases in numerous Maryland jurisdictions.  He has also won jury trials involving human trafficking, prostitution and sexual solicitation of a minor, and is ready to take on the state or federal government in your case.

"Thank you for all the time and effort that you put into defending my case. You were willing to fight for me when nobody else would believe my story, and you did not back down from the prosecutor. Another lawyer would have urged me to plead guilty, but you were willing to fight for me, and in the end justice was served. I appreciate everything you did and wish you all the best." Fred D.
