  • Drugs

You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to aggressively fight to limit the damage these allegations can cause. You deserve a fair trial, and you do not have to face this alone.

Rick Johnson is a seasoned Kansas City criminal defense attorney with extensive experience defending against criminal allegations, drug charges and sex crimes in Kansas City, MO and federal courts in Kansas and Missouri.

Sex Crimes

  • Child Molestation
  • Statutory Rape
  • Child Pornography
  • Prostitution
  • Solicitation 

The stigma attached to sex crime allegations can be devastating, especially if you've been wrongfully accused. The possible loss of family, friends, employment, and reputation can add to the mounting criminal penalties. Get experienced representation early to protect your rights.

Sex Offender Registration

If convicted of a sex crime, you may be  required to register as a sex offender with the State.  Not all such crimes require registration, and there may be ways to avoid reporting depending on the allegations and the facts in each case. You need to understand your options and all possible outcomes.

Jessica's Law

Jessica's Law can mean severe sentences for sex crimes against children, and nearly every state in the union has a version of this law in effect. Under this law, a defendant may be subject to increased punishment if there are prior convictions and the complaining witness is a child.  

Never discuss sex crime allegations with law enforcement, social service agents, or medical staff without first consulting an experienced sex crime defense attorney. It is far too easy to incriminate yourself, even if you are innocent and falsely accused.
