Atlantic County Juvenile Sex Offenses Attorney & Cape May Sex Crimes Attorney

Atlantic City Adolescent Sex Offenders Lawyer

If you have a child who has been accused of sexual assault or another sex crime, you need to be aware of the serious consequences that exist for these offenses, and what rights you and your child have under the law. More and more juveniles are being charged with sex crimes, and they are not immune from registering as sex offenders, which means that their lives will never be the same unless the right outcome is found.

I am John W. Tumelty, and I have practiced criminal law in Atlantic County, Cape May County and Atlantic City for more than 30 years, including juvenile crimes. If your child is faced with an allegation of a sex offense, I can help you protect your child’s rights during the police investigation and look at every option in criminal defense to help your child fight potentially lifelong consequences.

Don’t wait to speak with an attorney. Contact me as soon as possible to schedule an appointment regarding juvenile sex offense charges.

Atlantic or Cape May County Juvenile Sex Offenses Lawyer

In Cape May County and Atlantic County, my firm is experienced at working with juveniles charged with sex crimes and their families. This includes situations where a teenager is accused of statutory rape, an inappropriate picture is sent via text message or over the Internet by a child, a kid is accused of inappropriate touching or there are allegations of sexual assault by a minor.

Given that juveniles can be placed on the sex offender registry, and removal is not always possible, a proper criminal defense is critical for the future.
