Strong Defense Representation For Sex Offenses

Few things draw such visceral response and harsh penalties as sex crimes. A conviction may mean going to prison and being forever labeled as a sex offender. The mere allegation can ruin lives and reputations, resulting in the loss of jobs, friends and even family support.

I am criminal defense lawyer Ryan L. Beasley. I believe in the presumption of innocence and the constitutional rights of the accused, no matter what the allegations. I provide a true defense to individuals charged with sex crimes in the Greenville area and Upstate counties, including youths charged as juvenile sex offenders.

A good defense matters with so much at stake.

You Need An Experienced Sex Crime Defense Attorney

I practice in both state courts and federal courts in South Carolina. In 15 years of practice, I have defended clients in all categories of sex crimes:

  • Sexual assault and attempted rape
  • Criminal sexual conduct (offenses involving children)
  • Statutory rape
  • Spousal sexual battery
  • Child pornography
  • Online solicitation (seeking sex with a minor)
  • Prostitution crimes
  • Lewd behavior (exposure, peeping tom, etc.)
"Sexting" can lead to felony charges — such as sexual exploitation of a minor or distributing child pornography — if the subject or the recipient of such photos or videos is under the age of 18.

A Proactive Approach To Sex Offenses

I have good relations with people at all levels of the criminal justice system. Whenever possible, I try to speak with the prosecutor before an arrest or indictment. There may be opportunities for dismissal of the case or reduction of charges when I can present certain facts or your side of the story. I also work to avoid publicity that can be damaging to your reputation and your legal case.

At every stage of the legal process, I will assert your rights and defenses. I have successfully challenged search warrants, victim testimony, physical evidence and other facets of sex crimes — in hearings, plea negotiations and at trial — to avoid convictions or mitigate the punishment.

It is critical not to talk to the police until you talk to an attorney. Call me now at 864-991-3379 or 800-761-1985, or contact me online, and I will respond as soon as possible.
