The public and juries view child sex crimes as particularly heinous — little mercy is granted to a person accused of such a crime. In addition to the social stigma and the legal battles, a person who is convicted of a child sex crime can face serious consequences, including prison time and mandatory registration as a sex offender. He or she may also be prohibited from living in certain areas or holding certain types of jobs.
In many cases, false allegations fuel these inflammatory charges. If you were accused of or charged with committing a sex crime against a child, you need to get an experienced defense attorney on your side as soon as possible.

Skilled At Questioning Children And Teens
People charged with child sex crimes are wrongfully convicted more than individuals in any other crime. This is true because it is often the accuser's word against our client's word, and everyone wants to believe a child. At Buting, Williams & Stilling, S.C., we understand that questioning a child or teen for accuracy in a sex crime case takes careful planning and extreme sensitivity. Our lawyers have developed precise techniques when cross examining a child. We question ambiguous statements made by the accuser. We also work to raise reasonable doubt about the accusation if the child changed his or her story.
Many accusations may be encouraged or promoted by parents of young children or teens. We have become skilled at discovering the motive behind their testimony by asking the right questions that get a child or teen to speak accurately about their experience.
