Lake County Indiana, Porter County Indiana – Northwest Indiana Sex Crime, Sex Offense, Child Porn Defense Attorney

Sex Crimes & Sex Offenses

Inappropriate sexual discussions that take place in chat rooms and on social networking web sites have increased significantly due to the popularity of Internet web sites such as Craigslist. Unfortunately, one moment of poor judgment can have life-changing consequences because many times, people believe the worst before learning the truth.

If you have been arrested and charged with a sex crime, you are most likely facing backlash from neighbors, friends and even loved ones who assume that you are guilty of the charges. My name is Matthew N. Fech, a criminal defense attorney with substantial experience in sex crime defense. I work to make sure that you are not subjected to harsh treatment by the courts. You could be subject to restricted credit should you be convicted of some sex offenses in the state of Indiana.

The Law Offices of Matthew N. Fech, P.C. takes aggressive action to protect clients facing these types of charges because even if you are found not guilty of the allegations, a lengthy trial can cause damage to your reputation and lead to financial hardships.

Regardless of the nature of the charges against you, you will be treated with the same respect and courtesy I would offer my loved ones. As an Indiana criminal defense lawyer I have handled a wide range of sex offenses, including:

  • Possession or distribution of child pornography

  • Internet solicitation of a minor

  • Sexting and other cyberspace crimes

Child pornography is usually defined as the depiction of sexual conduct by minors and convictions carry severe penalties, due to strict state and federal laws such as Megan’s Law.

If you have been questioned, arrested or charged with an Internet sex crime, child pornography production, distribution or possession, sex with a minor or another type of sex offense, it is critical that you contact me to arrange a free and confidential meeting.  You can trust me to provide you with the information you need to make a fully informed decision about important next steps.

Before you say anything to authorities, talk with a Northwest Indiana defense attorney who represents clients throughout Indiana in all types of cases involving sex crimes.

People who are charged with sex offenses are treated harshly by prosecutors, and many times they are subjected to hostile treatment by the community, including friends and loved ones.  At the Law Offices of Matthew N. Fech, P.C., you will never be judged, regardless of the nature of your charges. I know that not every person who is charged with a crime is guilty of that crime.  I am dedicated to prompt resolution of my clients’ cases and protection of their legal rights because I know that sex offense allegations can ruin a person’s reputation, even if the accused person is found not guilty.

Sexting Is Not Just Child’s Play

The practice of sending indecent photos via the Internet, known as sexting, has become very popular, especially among young people.  Many youths do not understand that this crime can carry the same types of penalties as rape charges.  Some people dismiss sexting as teenage flirting, but it can have life-changing consequences due to Megan’s Law.

My law firm has experience successfully resolving a wide range of sex offense cases:

  • Internet sex crimes

  • Possession of child pornography

  • Sexual assault and rape

  • Sexual misconduct with a minor

  • Aggravated sexual assault

  • Indecent exposure

  • Child molestation/indecency

  • Solicitation of a minor

Serious Charges Require a Solid Defense

Whenever I begin working on a case, I thoroughly evaluate the circumstances of the charges, the arrest and the evidence.  Are the allegations false charges filed by someone who is just trying to cause trouble for you or by an ex-spouse who wants revenge?  Were search warrants properly obtained and executed?  Was innocent behavior construed as an indecent overture?

I have developed an extensive network of knowledgeable professionals who can help us prove your case and I consult them whenever appropriate.  My focus is on obtaining the best possible outcome for my clients in the most effective, affordable manner.

Contact me to arrange a free evaluation of the charges against you.  I will explain your legal rights and options and answer any questions you may have.
