JESSICA’S LAW

In Oregon, sex crimes against children may fall under “Jessica’s Law.” The crimes that Jessica’s Law addresses are considered among the most heinous possible criminal acts. Jessica’s Law requires a 25 year mandatory minimum sentence for adults convicted of raping, sodomizing, or sexually penetrating a child under 12 years of age. Anyone charged under Jessica’s Law is going to need serious and immediate help from an experienced Portland sex crimes lawyer.

NO SEX CRIME IS “TYPICAL”

Legally, “sexual assault” includes a wide range of unwanted physical and nonphysical sexual contact including rape, attempted rape, fondling, exhibitionism, voyeurism, obscene phone calls, and sexual harassment as well as child sexual abuse. In fact, there is no such thing as a “typical” sex crime case. Every case presents unique facts and circumstances that must be considered and independently evaluated. Often these cases involve alcohol or drug intoxication, and testimony may be confused and unreliable. Any charge of rape, statutory rape, unlawful penetration, sodomy, or sex abuse of any kind requires a careful review of the facts by an experienced Portland sex crimes lawyer. David McDonald aggressively defends every client; he fights to defend the rights of the accused and diligently strives for the best possible resolution to every case.
