Sexual Assault Or Rape Charges · Internet Sex Crimes

The Maggio Law Firm, PC, provides effective representation in the criminal courts of Harrison County, Jackson County and surrounding jurisdictions of Mississippi. We commonly represent Alabama residents arrested for sex offenses in Gulfport, Biloxi, Pascagoula and other local communities.

We will uphold your constitutional rights and provide a vigorous defense, no matter what the charges:

  • Sexual assault or attempted rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Offenses against children
  • Soliciting a minor (or undercover cop) for sex
  • Possession or distribution of child pornography

Increasingly, Mississippi prosecutors are bringing charges against adults or youths for "sexting" photos or videos depicting minors in nude poses or sex acts. These are very serious charges equated with child porn and sexual exploitation of children. No matter the age of the victim or the age difference, you need experienced defense.

Mitigating The Consequences Of A Sex Offense

If you are convicted of a sex crime, the state of Mississippi will add you to the Sex Offender Registry. Your name, photo and offense will be listed on the SOR website. You must notify state and local officials when you move or obtain new employment, and neighbors may be notified to warn that there is a convicted sex offender in the vicinity.

By intervening early we hope to avoid this. Stephen Maggio addresses every fact of the investigation and the arrest for opportunities to dismiss the charges or downgrade the crime to a lesser sex offense or nonsexual offense. We will go to trial when there is no hope of an acceptable plea agreement.
