Sexual & Abuse Defense
Criminal Sexual Contact
Criminal Sexual Contact is a 3rd or 4th degree felony charge in New Jersey. It is a lesser included offense of Sexual Assault meaning if the state does not have the evidence to charge Sexual Assault, they will give you this lower offense.
There is a presumption of non-incarceration for first time 3rd and 4th degree offenders. In order to take this case we must look into certain factors such as any victim credibility issues, witness reports, inconsistent statements in the past, etc.
