Sonora Sex Crime Lawyer
Facing a Sex Offense in Tuolumne County?
Sex offense charges come not only with criminal penalties, but also a societal stigma. We understand the embarrassment and shame that can immediately result from the filing of these charges. At The Law Office of Charles B. Smith, we don’t judge you – we realize actions are sometimes misinterpreted and that sometimes there are ulterior motives for the pressing of charges. We also understand that a client’s upbringing and past can often influence their current behavior. Our goals are to protect your privacy, confidentiality and rights while mounting an aggressive defense on your behalf.
Former prosecutor Charles Smith has handled hundreds of sex offense charges, on both sides of the aisle. The result of our years of experience and commitment has resulted in charges being dropped or reduced.

Sex Crimes Defense Strategies in California
We know that false accusations of sex crimes are all too common, and we are skilled at coming up with creative legal strategies and in following through with effective legal tactics to achieve our clients’ goals. Charles Smith is a former police officer who keeps his knowledge of investigative techniques current by instructing law enforcement officials and students at The College of San Mateo. Because of this, Mr. Smith can immediately spot violations of police procedure. Often, procedural violations can quickly lead to a dismissal of charges or to a plea bargain to significantly reduce charges so that it keeps you out of jail and keeps your name out of the public eye.
We also use experts, including psychiatrists and sociologists, to explain why certain sex offenses occur. By contacting victims, agreeing to make amends to an alleged victim and by humanizing alleged violators to judges and juries, we are often successful at having charges reduced or dismissed.
