Sex Crimes


San Diego County Sexual Assault Attorneys


Communities throughout San Diego County and Southern California expect their police and prosecutors to be tough on sex offenders. The mere allegation of misconduct involving inappropriate physical conduct can result in sexual assault charges. When a child victim is involved, prosecutors are under heavy pressure to pursue maximum charges.

If you have been charged with a sex crime in San Diego County, talk to the Law Offices of Arena & Schnitzer, APLC, as soon as possible. A conviction for a sex offense means possible registration on the state's sex offender registry.

At Our Firm, You Won't Be Judged. You Will Be Respected for Your Rights


There is a stigma that comes along with being charged with a sex crime. The court of public opinion often judges the person without cause. At Arena & Schnitzer, we want you to know that you will not be judged for the accusations against you. We will take the time to listen to what you need out of the situation. While preparing your case for trial, we work toward a solution that includes probation. We will listen to you and prepare a defense strategy that works toward the best possible outcome, beginning with preparing your case for a jury trial to secure an acquittal.

The cornerstone of our practice has always been the strategic application of intelligent, effective strategies based on the firm belief that everyone has the constitutional right to effective, vigorous legal representation.
