Certain child sex crimes are some of the only crimes with mandatory minimum penalties in Wisconsin. At both the state and federal level, people convicted of these crimes can face extremely lengthy prison sentences, depending on the severity of the crime. When the odds are already set against you, you need aggressive defense from an experienced Waukesha and Milwaukee child sex crimes defense attorney.
Contact Kuchler & Cotton, S.C. as soon as possible to start fighting your charges. We are available to take your call all hours of the day, every day.
Child sex crime penalties differ depending on the age of the child. A conviction for first degree sexual assault of a child can land someone in prison for more than 25 years. Our Milwaukee criminal defense attorneys defend against every level of alleged offense, from statutory rape charges involving consensual acts between an 18-year-old and his 16-year-old girlfriend (which would typically be prosecuted as a misdemeanor sex crime) to sex with a child under 13 years of age (which can be a felony).
The collateral consequences to a sex crimes prosecution can be severe. Every state has a sex offender registry and the rules for each registry are different. It is critical, especially if you are from out-of-state, that your attorney understand the requirements of each registry. At Kuchler & Cotton, our lawyers will give you the legal advice you need so that you can make the right decisions on how to proceed. In many cases, we have been hired by clients after they were already convicted because their first lawyer failed to research the sex offender registry implications of the crime.
With sex offenses, it is not enough to simply fight to have the charge reduced. Any conviction, even of a low-level offense, can carry lifetime consequences. Child sex crime penalties are severe and our attorneys will protect you throughout the process. We will take the time to build your defense. Ultimately, if you are falsely accused, or if a jury trial is your best option, our attorneys will work hard to see that you have the best trial defense that can be given.
Contact us before talking to the police. In many child sex crimes cases, the only supporting evidence the prosecution has is a person’s statement. Do not make a statement to the police. If you think you are under investigation for a child sex crime, contact an attorney as soon as possible.

- Child pornography
