Were You Accused Of A Sex Crime?

All sex crime charges have the potential to severely damage your reputation and your future. People who are charged with sex offenses often feel that their situations are hopeless because of the stigma associated with these cases. The public frequently assumes that everyone charged with a sex crime is guilty, but that assumption is untrue. You need a lawyer who will help you fight the charges and public perception.

I am defense attorney Rich Cassady, and I have the skill and tenacity to protect your rights in sex crime cases. You can come to me with North Carolina state charges, including possession of child pornography and sex offender registration offenses. My aggressive defense strategy and willingness to go to trial is well-known in the legal community. When the prosecutor does not treat my clients fairly, I will take cases to trial. With offices in Franklin and Murphy, I handle cases in Macon County, Cherokee County and beyond.

Protecting Clients In State Courts

The consequences of a conviction for a sex crime are serious. Depending on the specifics of the charges, you could be sentenced to years in prison and be required to register as a sex offender for life.

I defend people against charges such as:

  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Sex crimes involving minors
  • Possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Violations of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA)

SORNA violations can result in penalties of up to 10 years in prison. It is easy to violate registration rules unintentionally. If you are facing a registration offense charge, you need a lawyer with SORNA defense experience to represent you.
