Lawyers for sexual criminal law

Defence in sexual offence proceedings

The law firm Nobis represents you in all matters of sexual criminal law.

Nationwide defense of all sexual offences in all instances

Sexual criminal law is once again a separate focus for us. For example, at "Nobis Lawyers for Criminal Law" for sexual criminal proceedings, we have our own "Sexual Criminal Defense Department" with an experienced team of criminal defense lawyers who are exclusively active in sexual criminal law.

Sexual criminal law includes various criminal offences. Legislation in sexual criminal law has become complex and has become increasingly strict in recent years. For this reason, there are also newly introduced criminal offences. Case law is also increasingly taking action on allegations of sexual assault.

If there is an accusation from sexual criminal law, it is always serious. Therefore, it is all the more important to find a lawyer who is familiar with the peculiarities of sexual criminal law and has appropriate experience with these criminal defenses, because this is the only way to ensure a professional defense.

With a team of lawyers working only in sexual criminal law, we have been defending our clients nationwide for many years in sexual criminal law.

You had consensual sex and are now accused of rape?

Rape always requires a non-consual sexual act, whereby the lack of mutual agreement must also be recognizable to the accused. Amicable sex can never be a rape.

But what if your sexual partner (or sexual partner) - for whatever reason - claims that the sexual act was not consensual and you are now accused of a sexual criminal case? As lawyers in sexual criminal law, we experience this kind of case constellations very often. Very often in practice, the accusations of an alleged rape or other sexual offence come from the private environment of our accused client. Often the alleged victim in a sexual criminal case is the (ex)girlfriend, the (ex)lover, the (ex) partner, the secretary or colleague of the accused. The alleged victim thus comes from the direct private or professional environment of our client.

The accusation of rape is significant and "only" the accusation (which is still far from a conviction) can throw the accused completely off track. A conviction to rape threatens imprisonment of up to 15 years. The accusation is therefore to be taken extremely seriously from a criminal point of view. In the event of a conviction, the accused would lose a lot - maybe even everything - not just his freedom.

§ 184b StGB: Distribution, acquisition and possession of child pornography content

The penalties for the realisation of the criminal offence of spreading, acquiring and possessing child pornography content have been tightened by the legislator by the law to combat sexualised violence against children. The minimum penalty for the dissemination, acquisition and possession of child pornography content is now one year in prison and a sentence of up to ten years imprisonment can be sentenced.

Only under certain conditions can the prison sentence be less than one year, namely only if the child pornography content does not reflect an actual or realistic event. Only in these cases can a prison sentence of three months to five years be imposed.

If the perpetrator acts in the field of child pornography even commercially or as a member of a band, penalties of up to 15 years are possible, but at least 2 years imprisonment. By child pornography content, the legislator understands any image and video material as well as any illustrations that children (= under 14 years old) show in a sexually representative way.

If the persons on the pornographic content are between 14 years - 17 years, such a fact must be subsumed under the criminal offence of youth pornography. The distribution, acquisition, downloading and possession of youth pornography content is punishable by a fine or imprisonment of up to three years in the basic offence (§184c StGB).

Many years of experience in sexual criminal law

However, our many years of experience in sexual criminal law show that accusations wrongly made with good and meticulous defense work can usually be uncovered and the proceedings are terminated for the accusation of rape. The task of the criminal defense lawyer in sexual criminal law is to work out contradictions from the statements of the alleged victim. This is the core work of the lawyer in sexual criminal law. Sexual offences are all crimes against sexual self-determination. These offenses and crimes are codified in the StGB in §§ 174-184j.

These include (not exhaustive list!): sexual abuse of children, sexual assault / sexual coercion and rape, sexual abuse of subjects, possession, production and distribution of child pornography writings, sexual harassment. In the case of a conviction for a crime against sexual self-determination, the perpetrator is usually threatened with imprisonment.

In addition, measures for improvement and security can also be ordered. According to § 68 StGB, this includes management supervision and accommodation options. If the perpetrator is incapable of guilt according to § 20 StGB or if a reduced culpability within the meaning of § 21 StGB is certain, he can be accommodated in a psychiatric hospital or in the enforcement of measures according to § 63 StGB. The order of preventive detention within the meaning of § 66 StGB is possible if the perpetrator poses a danger to the general public. The law on combating sexual offences and other dangerous crimes stipulates that a sex offender is transferred to a social therapeutic institution if "the treatment (...) is indicated".

Defense in sexual criminal proceedings

Due to their high presence in the media and the considerable consequences of the crime, sexual crimes attract high public attention, which often leads to politicization (for example, in the context of disputes over the genetic fingerprint or subsequent preventive detention).

As a (presumed) perpetrator, we represent you without prejudice! With us, you will be represented without exception by criminal defense lawyers who have many years of experience in sexual criminal proceedings.

Sexual criminal law is a special area in criminal law. The special thing about these crimes is that there are usually no witnesses. It stands for statement against statement. The criminal defense lawyer in sexual criminal law must therefore be particularly trained to work out contradictions in the statements of the alleged victim and to carry out technically sound psychological evaluations.
