Offenses Against Children

Being Accused Is Not The Same As Being Guilty

Allegations of child sex abuse can quickly ruin a person's life, even when they are baseless. Because of the strong public reaction to the very thought of crimes against children, the accused may be presumed guilty and shunned by others in the community.

Thankfully, the standard of proof in a court of law is much higher than in the court of public opinion. Still, you need an experienced lawyer on your side to protect your rights, including the right to a fair trial.

At Mouton Law Firm, we offer aggressive, non-judgmental representation focused on facts. We have extensive jury trial experience and have successfully defended a number of clients against sex crime charges. We can help you, too.

The Legal Stakes Are High

Many types of crime can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor — including some sex offenses. But here in Louisiana, a sex crime involving a child will nearly always be charged as a felony. In addition to significant jail time and expensive fines, if convicted, you will also be required to register as a sex offender.

Tough, Smart Criminal Defense Representation

The attorneys at Mouton Law Firm have the skills and experience needed to defend you against charges related to all sex crimes against children. These include:

  • Carnal knowledge of a juvenile (statutory rape)
  • Indecent behavior with a juvenile
  • Molestation of a juvenile
  • Solicitation of a minor
  • Creation, possession or dissemination of child pornography
  • Sexting with a minor

Attorney Alan Golden has diverse experience in the criminal justice system, including serving as a prosecutor for a number of years. We understand how these cases are charged and what evidence prosecutors rely on for convictions. This knowledge guides our trial preparation and allows us to more effectively scrutinize evidence and cross-examine alleged victims and witnesses.
