Defense Against Accusations Of Sexual Misconduct

Being accused of a crime involving sexual misconduct is often the most traumatic experience of a person’s life. You may be completely innocent, but the mere accusation is enough to severely damage your personal and professional life.

At Burnham & Gorokhov, our lawyers are not afraid to take on these cases. We have successfully defended clients accused of rape, possession of child pornography, sex trafficking, indecent exposure, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, solicitation of prostitution, aggravated sexual battery, indecent liberties and other offenses.

Some examples of our past cases of this type include:

  • Back-to-back victories in cases brought by the Virginia Attorney General under the Sexually Violent Predator Civil Commitment Act;
  • Defended client charged with rape offense carrying up to life in prison in Virginia court. Negotiated plea bargain based on a defense of consent for dismissal of the charge following a period of probation;
  • Prosecution for distributing obscene material dismissed on First Amendment grounds in Virginia court;
  • Charge of soliciting prostitution dismissed in D.C. Superior Court based on prior misconduct of the officer conducting the “sting” operation;
  • Defended client charged with disorderly conduct in Alexandria federal court (EDVA) based on alleged sexual activity in vehicle parked outside Reagan National Airport. Charge dismissed pretrial.
