Sex Crimes Defenses are Complex. We Defend the Alleged Sex Offender Even if He/She is Guilty.

That is why it is of the utmost importance that you speak with a law firm who has extensive experience and success in dealing in these types of cases. By working closely with private investigators and expert witnesses, your sex crimes attorney at Wallin and Klarich has developed a comprehensive understanding of how the sex crimes cases operate and will develop a unique defense strategy specifically tailored to the facts of your individual sex crimes case.

If you are convicted of a sexual offense in California, you face a potentially lengthy jail or prison sentence and strict probationary terms depending upon the nature and circumstances of the offense. In addition, the court may require you to register as a sex offender under California Penal Code section 290. This duty requires you to annually update your registration with a local law enforcement agency for as long as you work, live, or attend school in California. Your name, address and photograph will also be released to the public on a sexual offender website run by the Department of Justice. If you fail to register as a sex offender, you can face an additional criminal charge for violating Penal Code section 290. The stigma of being classified as a sex offender can be devastating for both your personal and professional life. An experienced sex crimes attorney at Wallin & Klarich can vigorously fight for your chance to avoid this harmful criminal consequence.

Wallin & Klarich Stands Up For You and Takes Charge of Your Sex Case Immediately.

If you retain Wallin & Klarich to defend you at the earliest of your case, we can make arrangements to minimize the embarrassment and pain of being prosecuted for a sex crime. Rather than allowing you to be arrested at home or at work, we can contact law enforcement and attempt to arrange for you to turn yourself in. We can attempt to have you released on your own recognizance or on significantly reduced bail. In some cases, we can negotiate with prosecutors before charges are filed, convincing them to file less serious charges than law enforcement requested, or sometimes no charges at all.


When defending a client against sex crime charges, Wallin & Klarich mounts a thorough defense by often arranging a psychological evaluation of the client. Many times, this evaluation shows that the client doesn’t fit the sexual profile of the crime he or she is charged with. We will also often enlist the assistance of medical experts to review medical records as well as investigators to interview key witnesses. In some cases we are able to uncover a past history of dishonesty on the accuser’s part, or evidence that the accuser has a motive to lie.
