Former Prosecutor. Powerful Defense Advocate. Certified in the Area of Criminal Law

Visalia Sex Crimes Attorney

Protecting Your Rights and Preserving Your Freedom in California

In several significant ways, being convicted of a sex crime carries more serious consequences than a conviction for other types of charges. In addition to a possible prison sentence, you face the possibility of a lifetime listing on the California sex offender registry, which can limit your ability to live where you want to and work in your desired profession.

Gregory Hagopian defends people accused of all types of sex crime charges, including:

  • Sexual assault
  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation
  • Child pornography

As a former prosecutor, Gregory Hagopian understands how prosecutors and judges approach sex crime cases. He understands how to evaluate the strength of evidence, and most significantly, the weakness in the state's case. He also knows when and under what circumstances they are willing to agree to accept an arrangement that avoids listing on the Visalia sex offender registry.

If you have been charged, your best response is to obtain representation from an experienced and determined Visalia sex crime defense lawyer. Call The Law Office of Gregory Hagopian today at (559) 377-6627 to schedule a free consultation.

There are many different factors that can influence the severity of your conviction and sentencing which is why you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

When defending you, our Visalia sex crime attorney will consider all possible defense strategies. Depending on the circumstances of the case, these could include the motivation of the complainant, the identity of the alleged perpetrator, and other factors. Gregory Hagopian has extensive trial experience, and if it is necessary, he will defend your rights and freedom vigorously at trial.

Avoiding A Listing On The Sex Offender Registry

Listing on the sex offender registry is mandatory upon conviction for certain types of crimes such as rape. Listing is not required upon conviction for sexual assault or other types of sex crimes, however. It may be preferable to accept a conviction on a lesser charge rather than obtain a permanent, irreversible listing on the sex offender registry.

Our founding attorney has experience negotiating these types of plea arrangements. Before recommending this course of action, Mr. Hagopian will thoroughly review all aspects of the situation, explaining your options in detail.
