Sex Crimes Defense

We are prepared to help you confront any sex charges against you, including:

  • Rape

  • Statutory rape

  • Aggravated indecent assault

  • Involuntary deviate sexual intercourse (IDSI)

  • Indecent assault

  • Indecent exposure and lewd acts

  • Corruption of minors

  • Sexual assault, rape, IDSI and indecent assault

  • Criminal sexual abuse (of a child)

  • Date rape

The nature of these charges overlaps significantly, but they cover a variety of alleged actions. Involuntary deviate sexual intercourse refers to forcible anal or oral sex. Pennsylvania's indecent assault law prohibits nonconsensual contact or exposure to bodily fluids for the purpose of the perpetrator's sexual gratification.

With any sex crimes charge, there are many elements the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt, including consent. We will carefully examine the relevant evidence against you for weaknesses in the prosecution's case. Stephen Misko is a tough litigator who will not pressure you into taking a poor plea deal just to avoid going to trial. He will draw upon his extensive legal experience and considerable resources to keep you out of prison if possible.
