Have you been accused of a sex crime?

A mere accusation of a sex crime can be one of the most devastating events in your life. It can cause harm to your reputation, personal relationships, and career – and that’s all before you have even been found guilty and convicted!

Those who are convicted of a sex crime face severe penalties, including lifetime registration on a sex offender list – forever alerting anyone and everyone to what you may or may not have been guilty of doing.

More than any other crime, those accused of criminal sexual activity are at risk for life-long consequences. Many sex crimes are nothing more than miscommunication – a comment made by a student if you are a teacher or a patient if you are a doctor. Even a relationship-gone-bad can result in sex crime accusations. Those accused of sex crimes face a nationwide effort to get “justice” for victims, even at the expense of justice for the accused.

This is why the most important thing you can do if you are accused of a sex crime is to contact an attorney. You need someone on your side, protecting your rights, and building an aggressive defense in your favor.

Helping You Deal with Sex Crimes Allegations

Accusations of a sex crime can affect you for the rest of your life. You need someone to guide you through this frustrating and challenging time.

For more information or to schedule a consultation to discuss allegations made against you, contact The Law Office of Brion L. Gardner at 615.556.1287.

Penalties for drug offenses vary depending on your location and the accusations against you, but can be extremely harsh. In addition to fines and fees, there is also a chance you will be forced to serve time in jail or be threatened with the loss of your drivers’ license or other privileges, even as a first time offender.

To ensure your rights are protected and you are treated fairly by law enforcement and the court system, you must find an attorney that can provide support and guidance during this unpredictable time.

Some of the most common drug offenses include:

Drug Possession

You can be charged with drug possession when you are found in possession of an illegal narcotic. “In possession” means on your body, but could also refer to in your vehicle or in your home. It’s even possible to be charge with drug possession when drugs are not your own but are on your property. Laws regarding drug possession vary based on the type and quantity of the drug.

Drug Distribution

You can be charged with drug distribution based on your actions with the drug (law enforcement witnesses you selling the drug or attempts to make an undercover purchase of the drug), but also based on the quantity of drug in your possession.

For more information or to speak to someone about drug charges you are facing, contact The Law Office of Brion L. Gardner at 615.556.1287.

Criminal charges can be viewed as minor or “not that serious,” especially when the crime in question is a misdemeanor. Unfortunately, misdemeanor charges can be serious and even escalate into felony charges as law enforcement builds its case against you.

Regardless of the severity of the charges or whether you have been accused of a misdemeanor or felony, you need an experienced attorney on your side.


Misdemeanor crimes typically result in less severe penalties. Fines and jail time are possible, but in many cases, fines are just a few thousand dollars – still a steep amount if you are the one accused of the crime!

Those convicted of the most serious misdemeanors face months in jail and long-term repercussions in their personal and professional lives, including difficulty obtaining professional licenses or admittance to college. Crimes such as certain retail thefts, assault and criminal damage to property could result in nearly as much damage to your life as felony charges.

Keep in mind, if you have been charged with a misdemeanor in the past, it can result in a more serious charge now, even if current allegations are completely unrelated. As a “repeat offender,” you face additional jail time and a criminal record.


Whether you made a mistake or you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, felony charges can result in life-long consequences. In addition to jail time, a felony conviction makes every aspect of your life difficult – from finding a job to losing your right to own a firearm.

Felony charges occur in a variety of situations, including

  • Arson
  • Aggravated assault
  • Burglary
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug crimes
  • Sex Crimes
  • Weapons crimes
  • Kidnapping
  • Fraud
  • Rape
  • Murder

The most important thing you can do if accused of a felony crime is to contact an experienced attorney. He or she will help you through the questioning and investigative process, and help you build your strongest case in your favor. It is essential you have someone on your side protecting your rights. The Law Office of Brion L. Gardner can help.

Allegations of an assault crime can result in misdemeanor or felony charges. Penalties range from fines and a short time in jail to several decades in prison for attempted murder. Assault crime allegations are not something to dismiss or not take seriously.

Have you been charged with an alcohol offense?

Every day people are accused of breaking laws related to alcohol. In some cases it is the consumption of alcoholic beverages that is the crime, while other times it is the actions that occur after drinking that are considered illegal. Regardless of what charges you face related to the illegal use, sale, or possession of alcohol, I can help.

Protecting against Harsh Alcohol Crime Penalties

Charges related to alcohol offenses can result in serious penalties and harsh fines. The experience can affect your life in other ways, too. In many instances, charges are connected to other crimes. You might be in a situation where your use of alcohol led to other charges, such as assault, DUIS, vehicular assault, and vehicular homicide. You need to take action fast and do everything you can to minimize the impact of these events on your life.

You do not need to face this difficult experience on your own. I work with people every day who have made mistakes or were in the wrong place at the wrong time and want to correct their situation. I can provide you with the expertise, guidance, and support you need. The sooner you contact an attorney the better.

Have You Been Accused of Any of These Alcohol Related Offenses?

  • Underage drinking
  • Selling alcohol to minors
  • Breaking open container laws
  • Disorderly conduct while intoxicated
  • Public intoxication
  • Misdemeanor DUIs/Felony DUIs
  • Vehicular Assault
  • Vehicular Homicide

All of these are offenses that can result in serious penalties. Even if you are facing only misdemeanor charges and will not be forced to disclose your crime in the future, the event can still alter the course of your life.

Criminal charges can affect every aspect of your life. What is happening to you right now could play a role in your professional and personal life for years to come. The security of your job could be jeopardized and if you are a parent, custody of your children could be threatened. If you want to protect your family, protect your life’s goals, and protect your well-being, you need the support of an experienced attorney.

Alcohol related offenses should not be discounted as minor or not of a serious nature. You need to act fast and secure the guidance of someone who can provide the legal advice you need during this difficult time.
