Centrally located in the heart of downtown New Orleans, the law office of Bloom Legal is ideally situated to help clients on both sides of a sexual crime dispute. We handle all types of sexual crimes, whether in state and federal courts, and whether the victims are children or adults. Call Bloom Legal today at 504.599.9997 for a free consultation on how we can help defend your rights in your sexual crime case.
At Bloom Legal, we can handle all types of sexual crimes throughout Louisiana. The types of crimes that we are able to address include, but are not limited to:
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Sexual harassment
- Internet crimes
- Child pornography/exploitation
- Sex trafficking
- Luring or enticing a child
- Unlawful sexual activity
- Lewd or lascivious acts or contact
Many of these crimes can victimize either adults or children.
If you have been the victim of any of these crimes or any other type of sexual crime, the legal team at Bloom Legal understands your trauma and will give you the sympathetic, personalized legal help that you need during this difficult time. We will work to keep you safe by pursuing temporary restraining orders and injunctions against your wrongdoer, both of which are protective measures available to victims of crimes designed to keep their assailant or wrongdoer a safe distance away. Additionally, we will help you seek damages and awards from your assailant through civil actions, which will allow you to sue for the loss of your livelihood and happiness during this traumatic time. Bloom Legal's attorneys will also assist you and criminal investigators in the criminal investigation against your wrongdoer.
If you have been accused of a sexual crime, you also have rights
Any person accused of or charged with a crime in the United States has certain constitutionally guaranteed legal rights, which include the right to competent legal representation and the right to a fair trial. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your charge or accusation, from the time that you hire us, New Orleans' Bloom Legal will work to ensure that your rights are met.
Sexual crimes typically have two main consequences. The first is the criminal penalties including time spent imprisoned and a lifetime spent on the sex offender registry. The second consequence is the social stigma associated with these crimes, which may lead to job loss, divorce, and estrangement from friends and family. If you have been accused of a sexual crime, the lawyers at Bloom Legal can work to minimize the effects of this second consequence through early intervention and active involvement.
As we progress with your defense, the sexual crime lawyers at Bloom Legal will use several strategies to determine whether prosecutors have a case against you. Several questions we will ask and pursue include:
- Did the alleged victim create a false charge in order to cover up consensual sexual activities that would be damaging to that person's reputation or family?
- Did the alleged victim create a false charge out of retribution against you?
- Particularly if the alleged victim is a child, did the tactics of parents, teachers, or investigators create an instance of false memory?
- Did the police use appropriate methods of search and seizure, if seizing computer files or other pieces of property? If not, that evidence will be inadmissible in court.
The criminal defense attorneys at Bloom Legal are available for sexual crime cases across Louisiana and the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner metropolitan area.
