Building Upon Our Reputation by Drawing on It
Allegations of crimes related to sexual misconduct are enough to ruin a person’s reputation. The justice systems takes a “guilty until proven innocent” attitude towards people who have been accused of sex crimes, making it extremely important that cases involving sex offenses are handled properly from the start.
Effective criminal defense often boils down to your attorney’s reputation. If your lawyer is known as an attorney who won’t hesitate to bring your case to court and has won hundreds of jury trials, then prosecutors will likely be more willing to reduce and dismiss charges.
The St. Louis sex crimes defense lawyers of Rogers Sevastianos & Bante, LLP, have handled more than 200 jury trials and achieved substantial name recognition across the St. Louis area and across Missouri. When we arrive at the negotiation table, we are accompanied by a reputation as determined litigators who will fight hard and effectively in court to defend our clients’ rights.

- A prostitution-related charge

Missouri sex crime legal penalties are harsh. Most convictions result in mandatory jail time and a registration with the sex offender registry for your life.
We can help. We have represented lawyers, doctors, accountants, and other clients with a wide variety of backgrounds facing sex crime charges.
Registration as a Sex Offender Can Affect Nearly Every Aspect of Your Life
If you are facing allegations of a sex crime, it is critical to understand what is at stake. Registration as a sex offender is typically for the rest of your life and makes it possible for the general public to learn embarrassing details about your offense, see your picture, and find out where you live with ease. In addition, sex offenders are actually prohibited from living in certain areas or holding certain types of job. In these ways, registering as a sex offender can have an impact on your professional and personal life in profound ways.
