Rape & Other Sex Offenses in Mercer County
One of the nastiest types of offenses an individual can face is a sex crime. The reason for this statement stems from the severity of the penalties for those arrested, as well as the nature of the allegations that are often associated with this type of charge. The fact also cannot be ignored that the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office tends to be very inflexible when it comes to resolving a sex case. These circumstances should make it patently obvious that you need to hire an experienced sex offense lawyer if you have been charged with a violation falling within this category. The attorneys at Marshall & Bonus have been defending sex charges at the Superior Court in Trenton and elsewhere in Mercer County for over 100 years, and several members of our team are former prosecutors. An attorney at the firm can help you defend a rape or other sex charge anywhere in the region, including those arising in Princeton, Ewing, Lawrence Township, Trenton and Hamilton.

Sex Charges in Mercer County New Jersey
The New Jersey Criminal Code contains several charges that are sex based. Our team of criminal defense lawyers has extensive experience defending all of these offenses including:
- Sexual Assault
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
- Criminal Sexual Contact
- Aggravated Criminal Sexual Contact
- Endangering the Welfare of a Child
- Possession of Child Pornography
- Distribution of Child Pornography
An individual is not only exposed to significant penalties if they are convicted of violations such as these but is also, in many cases, subject to Megan’s Law. This provision makes sex offender registration and reporting mandatory for those convicted of many sex crimes. The identity of those falling within this category is often included on a state police sex offender registry available to the public. This factor makes it that more important that you do everything possible to avert a conviction and retaining a skilled attorney is your biggest weapon in this regard.
