Building a Strong Defense From the Start of Your Case
Before entering private practice, attorney Jacquelyn Ford served for five years as an Oklahoma City public defender, defending thousands of people against criminal charges, including many sex crimes. In 2011, she received the Clarence Darrow Award, given by the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, for outstanding criminal defense work.
If you are convicted of a sex crime, you may have to register as a sex offender. Often, prosecutors do not offer a plea bargain that will allow you to avoid the registry entirely. This requires a strong defense from the beginning.
Jacqui Ford brings the skill and devotion to defending people against a wide range of sex charges in state or federal court, including:
- Rape charges
- Lewd acts
- Sexual battery
- Failure to register as a sex offender
- Other sex crimes
When we represent you, we will work with you from the start to begin building your case. Sometimes the only evidence that prosecuting attorneys have is the statement of an alleged victim or a witness. We will investigate the facts of your case and closely review witnesses to attack their credibility. Whatever the evidence the prosecutor has, we will review it and counter it. We will fight as hard for you as the prosecutor is fighting to convict you.
