Attorney Sam Dixon and Dixon Law have handled hundreds of cases in Alabama involving allegations of sex crimes. Below is a list of many of the types of sex crimes Mr. Dixon has extensive experience litigating. Furthermore, Mr. Dixon has represented these defendants in Birmingham, Jefferson County, Shelby County, St. Clair County, Calhoun County, Talladega County, Madison County and many other surrounding counties in the Birmingham, Alabama area.
Unfortunately, in Alabama (as in most states), it does not take more than a mere allegation of unwanted sexual contact to warrant an investigation, or even a criminal prosecution, which can often lead to serious consequences such as prison and registration under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA); registration requirements under Alabama's SORNA laws also entail some of the strictest, life-long compliance regulations in the United States. Therefore, when a sex crime has been alleged, it is vitally important to hire an experienced and ferocious litigator to ensure your rights are protected.
Furthermore, when law enforcement begins their investigations, police investigators often heavily rely on confessions to obtain a conviction. Although forensic evidence sometimes exists in sex crimes, the real world is not a CSI episode. More times than not, it's a he-said/she-said case; this is just another reason to hire an attorney experienced in this area of law as soon as possible. Do not talk to the police or law enforcement without an attorney present! The reason it is important to have an attorney present when speaking to police are the tactics they are permitted to use! In Alabama, police often use coercive tactics in order to obtain a confession. They can lie to a suspect, lie about evidence against a suspect, question a suspect for hours, yell at them and even promise leniency from the judge (this is rarely true by the way). Basically, the police are permitted to lie about anything to get a confession. Do not be fooled! Law enforcement do not want you to have a lawyer!
