DuPage County Indecent Liberties with a Child Defense Lawyer

Working To Protect Your Rights And Reputation

There is no accusation more damaging to a person's reputation than to be accused of sexual assault or sexual abuse of a child. In the eyes of many people, you may already be viewed as guilty, even if the only evidence against you is the word of a child who may not even understand the charges.

A lawyer who understands your situation can make an immense impact on your defense. Our firm's founder, Philip R. Nathe, has over three decades of experience as a criminal defense lawyer. At our office, we will treat you with the respect you deserve while you and attorney Nathe work to protect your future. We also offer free consultations for case evaluations.

A Charge With Serious Consequences

Many innocent people get caught up in cases involving charges of child molestation or taking indecent liberties with a child. In some cases, the accuser is an ex-spouse or another person who has a motive for making the accusation. The alleged victim may even have been coached to say things that make you appear guilty.

Even if the charges have no basis, you still need an aggressive defense to protect your rights. In fact, an innocent person needs a lawyer even more so than a guilty one. You could end up being subject to penalties such as imprisonment and sex offender registration for something you never did. The offense of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child may apply if you are accused of engaging in sexual contact with a child under the age of 13, and if convicted, you could be sentenced to up to 60 years in prison.

You should not discuss the charges with police or anyone else until you have received legal advice. Even innocent statements can be twisted around and used as evidence against you. For example, if you state that you were alone with a child, an investigator could use that as evidence of opportunity. Without statements by you, police may not have enough evidence to place you under arrest or charge you with a crime.
