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.
Our criminal defense attorneys at Ryan Beasley Law believe in the presumption of innocence and the constitutional rights of the accused, no matter what the allegations. We provide a true defense for individuals charged with sex crimes in the Greenville area and Upstate counties, including youths charged as juvenile sex offenders.

A Proactive Approach To Sex Offenses
We have good relations with people at all levels of the criminal justice system. Whenever possible, we will try to speak to the prosecutor before an arrest or indictment. There may be opportunities for dismissal of the case or reduction of charges when we can present certain facts or your side of the story. We can also work to avoid publicity that can be damaging to your reputation and your legal case.
At every stage of the legal process, we will assert your rights and defenses. Our legal team has 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.
