Sexual Assault

Experienced Criminal Sexual Conduct Defense

With the exception of murder, sexual assault charges are among the most serious a person can face in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Under Minnesota law, criminal sexual conduct is a term that encompasses a wide range of sexual assault offenses, ranging from first-degree to fifth-degree offenses. First-degree charges can mean prison sentences of up to 30 years if you are convicted. In certain situations, life in prison is an option. In addition, you may be required to register as a sex offender nationally and on Minnesota’s predatory offender registry. These offenses, commonly referred to as rape charges, are among the most serious charges a person can face, and they should never be taken lightly. You cannot afford to face sex crime charges without an attorney to protect your rights. Our law firm, The Law Office of John J. Leunig, provides aggressive, intelligent and experienced defense against all sex offense charges.
Our founder is a Criminal Law Specialist certified by the Minnesota State Bar Association with more than 29 years of trial experience in the field of criminal law. Attorney Leunig has a proven track record of taking these cases to trial and winning and of negotiating favorable resolutions when a trial is unwarranted. Whether your case goes to trial or a settlement is negotiated, a successful resolution is always the product of hard work and excellent lawyering. We have the skill, intelligence, experience and resources to take on any criminal sexual conduct case, no matter how serious or daunting, and we have an exceptional record of victories at trial and in negotiated settlements in these types of cases. We have had numerous successful verdicts and have obtained countless dismissals and charge reductions in sex crime cases, including those involving minors and multiple victims. If you are looking for an attorney with the ability to handle every aspect of defending against these serious charges, look no further. Call The Law Office of John J. Leunig right now to talk to us about how we can help. 
We defend people in Minnesota and Wisconsin charged with all types of criminal sexual conduct, including:

  • Criminal sexual conduct (all degrees)
  • Sexual assault
  • Statutory rape
  • Date rape
  • Child molestation
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Internet solicitation of a minor
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Indecent exposure/lewd conduct

We have significant expert resources at our disposal, and we will investigate the case against you to determine what happened. We review all the police reports, documents and other evidence and often go to the alleged crime scene to determine what really happened. We conduct extensive research and file motions whenever necessary to determine whether the evidence in the case is admissible at trial. If the investigation was mishandled or if your constitutional rights were violated, we will file motions to suppress the evidence, which in some cases leads to a reduction or dismissal of the charges.

In sum, when we take on a sexual assault case, we spare no effort in meticulously preparing for trial and then flawlessly executing it in the courtroom. Whether a case is settled prior to trial or presented to a jury, the ultimate result is the product of hard work and relentless preparation. That is what we do at The Law Office of John J. Leunig and we do it well.
