Hunterdon County Sex Crimes Lawyers

Some of the most complex and highly contested criminal offenses litigated in Hunterdon County involve sex charges. There is so much at stake with little leway for inexperience when a person is looking at allegations of rape, sexual abuse or other offenses in this category. It is critical that an accused person retains an attorney with a great deal of experience if they are charged with a sex crime.

Sex Crime Charges in Hunterdon County, NJ

Here are some of the most common sex violations that a person can face at the Hunterdon County Superior Court in Flemington.

Endangering the Welfare of a Child. One form of endangering the welfare of a child detailed in 2C:24-4 involves sexual conduct that impairs or debauches the morals of a child. Sexual assault and criminal sexual contact both satisfy this definition although the spirit of this law goes much further. Even acts such as inappropriate hugging and kissing, performing sexual acts in the presence of a child, exposing a child to obscene materials, or coaching a child into masturbation can trigger this charge. Endangering is a second-degree offense when someone responsible for a child engages in this type of activity.

Possession of Child Pornography. The degree to which this offense can be prosecuted depends on how many images the person possesses.  It can be prosecuted as a first, second or third degree crime. If you possess images that depict a child engaging in a prohibited sexual act, simulation of such an act or depicting them in a sexually suggestive manner, you could face charges under this law. Note that a presumption of incarceration exists whenever someone possesses 100 or more images, even if you are a first time offender.

Distribution of Child Pornography. It is against the law to distribute, sell, possess with intent to distribute or take part in a file sharing network involving child pornography. It is graded as a first or second degree crime depending on the quantity of images are involved. There is a mandatory minimum term of five (5) years if the number of images distributed is more than twenty-five (25) but less than 1,000.

Human Trafficking. This is a first-degree offense under N.J.S.A. 2C:13-8.

Luring. To use the internet or other means to lure a child to a motor vehicle, structure or isolated area is a second-degree crime under N.J.S.A. 2C:13-6. Luring is a third degree crime if electronic means such as the internet are employed to lure or entice an adult.

Sexual Assault.  If a person has sexual contact with a victim under 13, uses physical force or coercion to engage in penetration, or there is sexual penetration with a victim under 16 and the defendant is in a supervisory position or at least four (4) years older than the victim, sexual assault has occured. Sex assault is also called rape and is a second-degree offense.

Aggravated Sexual Assault. Sexual assault are raised to “aggravated” if there is penetration with a victim under 13 or with a minor child who is at least 13 but younger than 16 and the accused is in a supervisory position.  It is also aggravated if penetration occurs during commission of a robbery, aggravated assault, kidnapping, homicide or burglary,  penetration is committed while armed or penetration occurs while the victim is incapacitated. This is a first-degree crime.

Criminal Sexual Contact. Criminal sexual contact takes place under the same circumstances as a sexual assault except that the conduct involves simply touching as opposed to sexual penetration. This is a fourth-degree crime.

Prostitution. Charges for prostitution and promoting prostitution are set forth at N.J.S.A. 2C:34-1. Prostitution is the exchange of money or something of value for sex or an agreement to engage in such a transaction. Prosecution charges are triggered when a person runs a prostitution operation, solicits people into prostitution, solicits buyers of sex, leases or provides a house of prostitution or transports prostitutes.

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is a serious criminal offense that can result in a prison sentence of up to 20 years. Sexual assault can be committed by anyone who attempts to engage in sexual contact with another person by force or coercion. This includes unwanted touching, groping, penetration and other sexual acts. The charges will be increased if the victim is under the age of 13 or the defendant is over the age of 18. If you are facing these charges, it is imperative that you speak with an experienced sex crimes attorney as soon as possible.

Aggravated Sexual Assault

Aggravated sexual assault is a first-degree felony offense punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Aggravated sexual assault occurs when someone commits an act of sexual penetration on another person by force or coercion and causes serious bodily injury to the victim or uses a deadly weapon during the commission of the crime. Aggravated sexual assault also occurs when someone commits an act of sexual penetration on another person who is under 13 years old or commits an act of sexual penetration on another person who suffers from mental disability, developmental disability or physical incapacity that prevents them from offering consent. An experienced sex crimes attorney can help you defend against these charges and work toward getting them dismissed entirely.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
