Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
Sex Crimes Attorney in Shreveport, Bossier City, Monroe, & Ruston, LA
Sex Offenses, Internet Solicitation & Child Pornography Representation
No allegation is as damaging to one’s personal reputation as an alleged sex offense. Besides severe criminal penalties, a conviction becomes a part of your permanent criminal record and means your name will appear in the sex offender registry for long periods in the future. In some cases, lifetime registration is required. This prevents you from being eligible for certain jobs and often destroys relationships with members of your own family. In response to these types of allegations, immediate action is required to minimize the consequences.
Attorney Eric Johnson provides representation for individuals charged with sex offenses, cybercrimes related to sex offenses and possession of child pornography. He fights for his clients and works for the best possible outcome in every case, regardless of the facts.
When necessary, Eric is capable of successfully litigating your matter in front of a judge or jury. His record in this regard speaks for itself. Eric has won acquittals for clients charged with aggravated rape and molestation of juveniles. Furthermore, Eric has gotten sex offense charges dismissed and, in many instances, has gotten sex offense charges reduced to misdemeanors and non-sex-offense felonies with the clients receiving probated sentences.

Standing Up for Your Rights
In criminal courts, you’re innocent until proven guilty. While this principle applies to every criminal allegation, it is especially important when it comes to charges of a sex offense. Rumor or innuendo that crimes were committed is not enough to arrest or convict.
Law enforcement officers sometimes use Internet chat rooms during police stings. While effective in increasing the number of arrests for sex offenses, innocent people are often charged. These tactics also result in invasion of privacy and violations of constitutional rights.

As a skilled trial lawyer, Eric Johnson understands the tactics police investigators employ to make arrests. With more than two decades of litigation experience, he knows how to counter evidence introduced by prosecutors or oftentimes prevent its admission at trial altogether. Eric pays extremely close attention to every detail and extensively prepares for every trial.
