Strategic Defense for Serious Charges in Washington County, Benton County & All of NWA

If you have been accused of sex crime in Arkansas, a conviction can result in long prison sentences and high fines. Additionally, you may have to register as a sex offender for many years.

If you feel like all hope is lost, Attorney Doug Norwood and his criminal defense team can fight for your freedom and future.

We strongly advise that you hire an experience attorney as soon as possible.

We are not afraid to go to trial or fight to get you the very best outcome. Local prosecutors are aware of how hard we fight for our clients and often give us great deals because of two reasons: (1) they respect us for working so hard for our clients and (2) they know that they may have a tough court battle ahead if they don’t.

Rape and assault are among the highest penalized sex offenses. Without a skilled advocate on your side, a conviction for rape can result in 40 years or life in prison. Sexual assault in the first degree (a Class A felony) carries a maximum 30-year prison sentence.
