Kentucky Sex Crime Attorneys Fighting For You
If you are unjustly accused of committing a sex crime, you are probably feeling like your world is tumbling down in excruciating pain and agonizing embarrassment. Unfortunately, being accused can unfairly make you appear guilty. Without the aid of our experienced law firm, defendants can sometimes find themselves facing challenges that will follow no matter where they go in life. Courts and juries often automatically take the side of the alleged victim without giving the defendant a fair trial.
At Landon Law, we uphold the truth. Everyone has a right to be heard and given just treatment according to our laws. We can support you in bearing this accusation and working against those who have made such serious allegations. Through the dedication of our Lexington sex crime defense attorneys, many victims of unjust charges have been able to win their cases and return to living normal lives.
Types Of Sex Crimes In Kentucky
There are many types of crimes that you might be accused of. Our Lexington sex crime defense attorneys have in-depth experience representing clients charged with serious sex crimes. They have even overturned convictions for serious sexual crimes at the Kentucky Supreme Court.
The primary categories of sex crime include:
- Rape and date rape: In Kentucky, all three degrees of rape are considered felonies. The most serious type, rated as “first-degree,” includes a rape where the victim has been violently forced to have sex or where the victim is under 12 years of age. Second-degree rape still includes compulsion by force, but not at the level of first-degree rape. This also includes cases where the victim was either mentally incapacitated or physically unable to consent. Third-degree rape still involves a lack of consent and threatened harm to the victim but is not nearly as violent.
- Sodomy: In Kentucky, the crime of sodomy is used to charge people of sexual acts that do not involve intercourse. The penalties for the crime of sodomy are just as serious as the crime of rape.
- Sexual assault: In some cases, a victim might have not been forced to have intercourse but still was violently abused sexually, which counts as assault. Victims could also be forced to act in sexualized ways, particularly by family members, friends or other members in a close relationship, signifying that sexual abuse has taken place.
- Pornography: This type of charge can result from a vast set of crimes linked to pornographic videos, images and more. Depending on the severity of the crime, the defendant could be convicted of a serious felony or a misdemeanor. Using pornographic material with images of children along with possessing or emailing illegal sexual content could result in a conviction. The commonwealth of Kentucky also has a statute that makes “revenge pornography” a criminal offense.
Sex Offender Registry In Kentucky
One of the severe penalties of being convicted of a sex crime is that you could be added to the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry. Some registration requirements are for periods of 20 years, whereas others are for life. Being placed on this registry will negatively affect all aspects of your life, from your job to your family to your ability to engage in society.

Charles and John both worked on my case together, both were always very open and communicative about my situation. Very understanding and responsive to questions, and straight forward! Also very respected in the court room. Any problem I ever had, they had the answers for my as far as my case goes. Would 1000% recommend to anyone, and I know if I ever need a lawyer in the Lexington/Richmond Area, that’s exactly who I’m going to.- Julian
Couldn’t be more pleased with Landon Law. I specifically worked with John Landon for two individual cases. Both got resolved without a hassle. John was attentive and very personable. Took time out of his personal life to speak with me multiple times via phone call or email. I can strongly say that by the end of your time with him, you’ll consider him a friend as well as an attorney. Never worked with a more personable and respectful firm. I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me. Will highly recommend them to any of my friends in the future in need of legal help. Thank you John, and thank you Landon Law!- Anonymous
They are the best..their fees are pretty fair and reasonable. Cheaper than any other lawyer I called. I worked with Charles Landon. Every time I had a question, concern or feeling hopeless, my text or phone call was always returned quickly. The outcome of my case was way more than I expected in my favor. He made sure that I never felt alone, that we were in it together. The confidence he had of himself reassured me that I was in good hands. He wasn’t judgemental or arrogant like most other lawyers. Just down to earth, he doesn’t stop fighting for your best interest. I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you.- Noretta
Charles has helped me a lot I would definitely recommend him for any case no matter the situation he is a great lawyer and has helped me progress on my life and get through some things as well thanks Charles I greatly appreciate everything you have done for me.- Amanda
Soooo lemme just start with how I got charged with wanton endangerment class A felony and Charles Landon got the E N T I R E thing DISMISSED!! Do y’all hear me!!?? DISMISSED!! He is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever had in my life and I’ve had a few sadly /: But with Charles I would highly highly hiiiiiiighly recommend his services. Not only did he get the absolute best outcome for me, it was very impressive how obviously intelligent, professional, and intuitive he was yet super chill and down to earth at the same time. Also, he always kept in touched by updating me with the progress of my cases and never skipped a beat when answering my calls/texts. Sometimes I would even call him when I was super anxious because I was overthinking and nervous and he would gently lay out the facts & our game plan for me again and remind me not to stress to much which helped soOooOo much. He took my feelings into consideration and truly made me feel important and heard. I could literally go on and on about how amazing of an attorney he is. But to make it simple, Landon Law IS the best choice!!
Forever grateful for him :))- Anonymous
I had Charles Landon with a case that had been going on 2 years. He answered every phone call, question and always made sure I was informed and had the best defense possible. When my case started I was facing 20 years my case ended with me getting 5 years probation. Beyond grateful for him. Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you as much as they are able to.- Ashlee
