By: Larry Kohn, Veteran Criminal Defense Attorney Atlanta and Sex Crimes Lawyer Since 1998

The following list of Title 16 Georgia sex crimes and related offenses will cover most of the potential criminal charges a person can be indicted for or arrested for. Primarily, these are felony offenses, but our law firm has been able to negotiate some crimes down to misdemeanors.

Contact Our Law Firm’s Sex Crimes Attorney Larry Kohn

Please ask about a FREE consultation with a criminal defense attorney near me to learn about our legal services for accused sex offenders. Acting early can be a huge advantage to have legal counsel contact the necessary people to resolve some cases involving less serious sexual acts (e.g., sexting).

Protect yourself or a family member from needless serious charges and a criminal prosecution. In some cases, our law office’s early involvement can mean the difference in the “persons listed” by police to investigate. When a FREE lawyer consultation is available, why not take advantage of this opportunity to not be listed on the sex offender registry GA listings? Call us, 24-7, at (404) 567-5515.

Client Reviews
Great lawyer helped me out a lot. Very attentive, made me feel comfortable and at ease!! Really knows his stuff - would use him anytime. M.L.
Mr. Larry Kohn could not have been more helpful. I sent him a message for a free consultation, and unfortunately my case had to be handled in another state. But he completely walked me through everything I needed to do, and even offered to assist the lawyer I did find in Virginia should they need help with my case. Jamie V.
Mr. Kohn is just amazing. He is truthful and realistic when explaining potential outcomes of your case and doesn’t force you to hire him or anything. When I met him, he went through everything about the case and ways to fight it off first before even telling me about his services. He got my case dismissed and kept me out of a lot of potential problems with school applications and future job opportunities. I highly recommend him to anyone. Anurag G.
