A Strong Defense Can Make All The Difference

Sex Crimes Demand A Strong Defense

Few crimes carry such a stigma and such harsh penalties as sex offenses. A conviction could mean prison time and being branded as a sex offender.

Johnson Criminal Defense is adamant about defending the rights of the accused. Amber Johnson understands what is at stake, and she understands that it seems like the whole system is stacked against you. You can count on her to fight the charges and do whatever she can to mitigate the punishment.

Skilled Representation For Serious Criminal Charges

Amber represents anyone accused of criminal sexual conduct (sex crimes) in Minnesota, whether state or federal charges:

  • Sexual assault or attempted rape
  • Child molestation
  • Statutory rape
  • Soliciting a minor for sex
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Producing or distributing child porn
  • Engaging in prostitution
  • Lewd conduct (voyeurism, indecent exposure)
  • Kidnapping or false imprisonment

Sex offenses are almost always a felony, which means a conviction carries the real possibility of a prison sentence. Criminal sexual conduct also results in the heavy burden of registering as a sex offender for 10 years or for a lifetime. That means having to notify local law enforcement every time you move or switch jobs. It means your neighbors may be notified of your status. It even restricts where you can live and what jobs you can have.

How Johnson Criminal Defense Helps Those Accused Of Sex Crimes

Amber Johnson practices exclusively in criminal law. She has a reputation as an aggressive advocate for her clients, but she also has good working relationships with the district attorneys and U.S. attorneys who prosecute these crimes. When contacted early in the case, she can intervene with the prosecutor to help to avoid a humiliating public arrest and possibly influence what crimes are charged.

She also makes sure that your constitutional rights are upheld. She explores all possible defenses, from the validity of search warrants or physical evidence to the reliability of statements by victims, witnesses and mandatory reporters. Her goal is to shield you and your family from the public fallout and prevent the worst consequences, through pretrial motions, plea negotiations or defending you at trial.

Everyone Has The Right To A Defense

The government has the burden of proof and you have specific rights.
