Is it possible to beat a sex crime charge?
While the State's evidence against you may be enough to support your
arrest and a sex crime charge, it ultimately may not be enough to prove
beyond a reasonable doubt that you are in fact guilty of a sex crime.
Avoiding prison time, avoiding sex offender registration, and perhaps
even avoiding conviction entirely are possible with a good, experienced
criminal defense attorney.
Contact the Winston-Salem office of Dummit Fradin, to discuss your case

Have Dummit-Fradin Attorney's had success in defending against sexual
At Dummit Fradin, our Attorney's have had great success defending against
all types of sexual offenses. The following is just a sample of some of
our success stories.
Recently, a client was charged with 1st degree statutory rape, along with
other charges. Client was facing life in prison without parole. Our Greensboro
legal team, was able to negotiate a plea to a significantly lower charge,
Indecent Liberties with a Minor, and Contributing to the Delinquency of
a Minor. Defendant was ordered to serve ONLY 180 days in jail as a condition
of 4 years of probation.
In 2012, Attorney,
Barbara Rynne was able to convince the District Attorney's Office to dismiss sexual
battery charges against a law enforcement officer client, who was wrongfully charged.
In 2010, Attorney Barbara Rynne represented a 16 year old student, charged
with 2nd Degree Sexual Offense. The client was facing a maximum of 228
months in prison. Ms. Rynne was able to convince the District Attorney's
Office to dismiss the charges entirely, after pointing out the inconsistencies
and deficiencies in the evidence.
In addition to getting charges dismissed, our firm has been able to help
clients completely avoid sexual assault charges when our legal representation
was secured early in the police investigation. Putting up a good defense
BEFORE you are charged is always better than having to play catch up after
you are charged. Pre-charge representation by one of our attorneys have
kept charges from being filed against clients in cases involving Indecent
Liberties with a Child, Distribution of Child Pornography via a P2P network,
2nd Degree Sexually based offense and Possession of Child Pornography.
Can a Sexually based offense Charge be removed from your record?
If you were accused of a sexually based offense and found not guilty, or
if the charges against you were dismissed, you may be eligible to have
the sexual assault charge removed from your criminal record. This removal
process is called an Expunction, and, if granted, means that all records
of the criminal investigation and related charges will be destroyed. If
DNA evidence was collected during the investigation for a sexually based
offense that was later dismissed or of which you were acquitted, you can
request that the DNA evidence collected be destroyed as well.
If you were convicted of a sexually based offense, and were required to
register on the Sex Offender Registry, after completion of your sentence
and other requirements, you may be eligible to petition the Court to have
your name removed from the Sex Offender Registry. Please consult with
one of our
criminal defense attorneys to see if you would be eligible for removal.
