Tennessee Sex Crime Defense Lawyers

Barnette Law Offices, LLC – Nashville, TN Sex Offense Attorney’s


When charged with a sex crime, the mere accusation of the crime can have a devastating effect on your life, including serious harm to your reputation, career and personal relationships. If convicted, you can face a lifetime registration as a sex offender and severe criminal penalties. A sex crime conviction can follow you for the rest of your life, and convictions can occur even when the only evidence is the victim's word.

Even the casual comment made by a child, a complaint by a student, a patient-doctor relationship gone bad or a difficult divorce can all result in potential sex crime charges. It is you and your attorney alone who can turn the tide in your direction.

This is why charges of sexual crimes must be taken seriously and defended aggressively. Because of the current political climate, there is a nationwide effort to pursue sexual predators relentlessly. The government has spent tremendous time and money to set up sting operations, and the news media and prosecutors are all playing on public fear.  If you’ve been charged with a Sex Offense in Tennessee, call the experienced Nashville Criminal Defense Lawyers at Barnette Law Offices, LLC, – 615-585-2245.

Jason Barnette, Esq. of Barnette Law Offices, LLC is experienced in handling sex offenses under Tennessee law.  Sex crime charges are generally "he said, she said" cases in which the jury must decide between the word of the victim and that of the defendant.

Before you consider a guilty plea, be sure you fully understand all of the consequences of a sexual conviction and call Nashville Sex Crime Defense Lawyer Jason Barnette at Barnette Law Offices, LLC or any of our Tennessee Criminal Defense Attorney’s before doing anything!

With that said, there are generally no acceptable plea agreements for most sex crimes because of the requirement for lifetime sex offender registration. These charges must be fought using a legal defense with specific experience in this area of criminal law.

Sexual defense is different from other areas of criminal law and requires very specific techniques and experience. The skilled Nashville Criminal Defense Lawyers at Barnette Law Offices, LLC, often employs psychologists, computer forensic examiners, and private investigators with the expertise to use these tools in the most effective manner.

One defense strategy is to deny that the alleged sexual act occurred in the first place or that the sexual act did not involve the defendant. DNA and other forensic evidence may be used to support this defense. Another strategy is to argue that the act was consensual. This requires skilled argumentation by your attorney and may depend strongly on the use of psychologists, character witnesses and expert private investigation services.
