We Understand What's at Stake

Trial lawyer Ed DeWerff has handled all types of sex crimes, including:

  • Sexual assault (rape)
  • Child rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Aggravated statutory rape (teacher, coach or other authority figure)
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Internet solicitation of underage girls (or boys)
  • Sex offender registry violations

Mr. DeWerff is a former prosecutor with more than 16 years of experience in criminal defense, including more than 80 jury trials. He makes every attempt to have charges dismissed for lack of evidence or get charges downgraded to a lesser offense. If the D.A. has a solid case, Mr. DeWerff will attempt to negotiate in order to mitigate the penalties, or begin preparing to defend you before a jury.

What evidence or witnesses tie you to the alleged sex crime? Did police have a warrant to search your home or seize your computer? Were innocent actions construed as something sinister? Was a young child coerced to implicate you, or did an older youth have a motivation to make up the allegations? Is an adult claiming rape after consensual sex?
