Have You Been Arrested For A Serious Sex Crime Or Internet Crime?

A criminal conviction on serious sex crime and internet crime charges, such as online solicitation of a minor or possession of child pornography, can effectively end your life — behind bars and later, after a debt to society has been paid.

I am Columbus criminal defense attorney John H. Bates. For more than 20 years, I have worked hard to protect the rights of Central Ohio criminal defendants accused of everything from rape and indecent exposure to child molestation, sexual assault and domestic violence.

If one of these serious charges applies to you, you deserve a fair trial and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. The burden of proof to convict you falls on the prosecution — while I work hard to lobby for reduction and dismissal of your charges. To these negotiations, I bring fact-finding from in-depth investigation, including details unearthed by expert IT specialists who know personal computers and how evidence can be misconstrued as incriminating.

Should your case go to trial, you can be assured that every weapon in my law firm's arsenal will be dedicated to preserving your rights and interests, freedoms and future. I am a defense lawyer with the experience, skills, knowledge and personal service that can make a positive difference in your life.
