Sex offenses are crimes involving sex-related activities and must be aggressively defended against. The ramifications of a conviction of a sexually-related crime most often include jail or prison time and lifetime registration as a sex offender. The law office of William Cole has successfully defended clients regarding sex-related crimes, including rape or statutory rape, sexual battery, and child molestation.

Statutory rape includes consensual sexual intercourse with persons under a particular age, which varies in the state of California and Nevada. Even the crime of indecent exposure can cause a convicted person to have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Trespassing is a common charge in Nevada. Casinos are private property. If you are asked to leave, you must leave immediately or you will be arrested. If you return to the property after being asked to leave, you will likely be arrested.

The law office of William Cole offers persons accused of criminal law violations a free consultation and experienced, aggressive and effective representation. Call (775) 588-2800.
