West Covina Child Molestation Lawyers

Accused of Annoying Or Molesting a Child?

California sex offenses, including annoying or molesting a child under 18 years of age, are notorious crimes that require sex offender registration in addition to the other consequences of a conviction. Because sex offender registration is a lifetime requirement, the convicted party will likely live a life of stigmatization, isolation, and ostracization in perpetuity.

At Coimbra Law Firm, we provide legal defense against clients like yourself who have been accused of a sex offense involving a minor. We have the completely discrete and dedicated attorneys to destroy the false or exaggerated accusations against you. We care about only on thing: winning your case.

Understanding Child Molestation Charges

It is a crime to annoy or molest a child who is under 18 years old, or even an adult who was believed to be 18 years old at the time of the alleged incident. With 15 years of experience practicing criminal law and defending sex offenses, our West Covina criminal defense lawyers are skilled at disproving the prosecution's arguments.

It should be noted that the child need not have actually been disturbed or irritated for you to be convicted of this crime. In fact, it is not necessary that the child have even been touched (provided, of course, that there was conduct that could be identified as annoying or molesting).

In order to reach a conviction, the prosecutor will need to prove the following elements:

  • That you engaged in conduct directed at a child
  • That any normal person would have been disturbed, irritated, offended, or injured by your conduct
  • Your conduct was motivated by an unnatural or abnormal sexual interest in the complaining witness (the child)
  • The complaining witness was under 18 years of age at the time of the conduct
