Client Review:
Defending a Man Accused of Rape

This Guy is Innocent

“I realized, this guy is innocent,” said criminal defense attorney Jonathan W. McConnell. “He wanted someone to fight for him because he was innocent!” In January 2015, the McConnell Law Firm founder met a man wrongly accused of rape. Jon spent the next year heavily investigating the case, utilizing private investigators, medical experts and even an anonymous letter to form the defense that resulted in the dismissal of charges. “Had I been dependent on a public defender, there’s zero doubt in my mind that I’d be in prison right now,” said Saber Hossinei. “Jon cares so much. He’s not my friend, he’s my big brother.”

Sex Crimes Frequently Asked Questions

At the McConnell Law Firm, we understand the confusion you are likely experiencing when falsely accused of a sex crime. Our team has years of experience defending cases like yours and wants to ensure you obtain the answers you deserve to make the best possible decision about your case. We encourage you to browse our sex crimes Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below or contact us today to discuss the specifics of your case!

  • Will I have to register as a sex offender?

    If convicted of a sex crime, it will be your duty to register as a sex offender with the state you reside in. In Kansas, you will be obligated to report in person to the registering law enforcement agency within three days when beginning, changing, or ending a residence, employment, or school. The length of registration may be for a specified term or an indefinite period depending on the circumstances of your case and the conviction received, with registration periods ranging from 15 years to 25 years to life.

  • If I am found not guilty of a sex crime, will it remain on my criminal record?

    If you have been falsely accused of a sex crime and found not guilty or had the case dismissed, there will not be a conviction on your criminal record, but you may experience collateral consequences associated with the arrest. Many times, sex crimes accusations carry severe social consequences that may affect your employment, social status, and more, so it is important to contact an experienced sex crimes attorney in Wichita as soon as possible to keep your record and reputation clean!

  • What is the penalty for a sex offense conviction in Kansas?

    When facing false sexual allegations, your business or livelihood may be destroyed or negatively impacted, and your interpersonal relationships can be ruined. From a legal standpoint, a conviction may also result in hefty fines, prison time, and the requirement to register as a sex offender in your state.

  • Are sex crimes bondable offenses?

    Sex crimes are bondable offenses; if you are charged with a sex crime, the court will set a bond amount that allows you to remain out of jail until trial if you have the financial means to do so. The judge presiding over the case will thoroughly assess the risk of allowing an alleged offender to stay out of jail for the duration of the case and set the bond amount accordingly. Typically, more serious or high-profile cases will have higher bond amounts than those deemed less severe.

  • When should I hire a sex crimes attorney?

    Although every case is different, and no conclusions should be drawn without a legal consultation to discuss the specifics of your case, it is usually best to hire an attorney immediately following a false accusation. While our team at the McConnell Law Firm encourages you to contact an experienced attorney at the beginning of a criminal investigation, we can also provide assistance once the prosecutor has already filed charges.
