People charged with aggravated sexual assault in New Jersey are often confused by the charges. Sexual Assault allegations are often made against a person years after it supposedly happened without any mention of a specific date or even month. False accusations are sometimes even used as a means to get an upper hand in a child custody matter. Evidence can be severely lacking and often comes down to what many New Jersey Attorneys call a “he-said-she-said” type case.

Former New Jersey Sex Crimes Prosecutors
Penalties for a conviction of aggravated sexual assault are up to 20 years in prison and a lifetime registration on the New Jersey Sex Offender Registry, under Megan’s Law. The aggravated sexual assault attorneys at Clark & Clark know what’s at stake. Our lawyers have nearly 30 combined years of criminal law experience, including more than 25 combined years as prosecutors for Monmouth County. We know how the prosecution gathers evidence and we know where the flaws often lie in their cases.
Taking Action on Your Behalf
We are not a plea bargain-only criminal defense law firm. Unlike many other New Jersey law firms, we have successfully taken numerous sex crimes cases to trial ranging from fourth-degree sexual contact to first-degree aggravated sexual assault. Our attorneys can put this experience to work for you.
We prepare every case as if it is going to go to trial. In many cases, we have had great success convincing Prosecutors to reduce or dismiss charges.
If you have been charged with sexual assault or aggravated sexual assault in New Jersey, your future will depend on your defense lawyer’s knowledge of the criminal justice system, your rights and the prosecution’s strategies. We have the experience, skill and knowledge you can rely on.
We know that sex crimes cases are sometimes based on damaging false allegations. We promise responsive, personal and highly confidential representation throughout your case.
Alternatives to Jail
At Clark & Clark, LLC we have been extremely successful in winning sex cases at trial, obtaining probationary terms rather than jail sentences for our clients, or convincing the Prosecutor’s Office to dismiss the charges where appropriate. In some cases, we are able to get the charges downgraded to a lesser charge as part of the plea negotiations. We will also explore the possibility of entry into a Pre-trial Intervention Program (PTI). PTI is a diversionary program that allows you to put your case on hold for a short period of time. Completion of PTI (usually a 1 year program) results in a dismissal of your charges at the end of the PTI term.
