Roanoke Sex Crime Defense Lawyer

The negative public stigma related to sexual offenses can make it difficult to get the fair criminal process you deserve. It is imperative that you have an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer to combat these serious charges. From the law office of Robert F. Rider PLC in Roanoke, Virginia, founding attorney Robert F. Rider provides aggressive, knowledgeable criminal defense against sex crimes charges. Mr. Rider has established a strong reputation throughout southwestern Virginia, in part through his work defending individuals against a wide variety of sex charges, including:

  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Criminal sexual contact
  • Lewdness
  • Child pornography
  • Failure to register as a sex offender
  • Rape

Mr. Rider's experience as a prosecutor gives him insights on strategies used to get a conviction, allowing him to prepare a strong defense. He also conducts his own investigation to build your defense. He does not hesitate to take a case to trial if a pretrial agreement cannot be reached.

Many criminal defense attorneys are quick to agree to a plea agreement rather than take the time to assess the strength of the state's case. Because conviction in many of these cases can mean a mandatory sentence of five years or more, you cannot risk the outcome of your case to an inexperienced or less dedicated attorney.
