James H. Maynard, Esq. was one of sixteen talented attorneys and experts from around the country who was invited to give a presentation at the Sex Crimes Seminar in Las Vegas in November 2018. The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer (NACDL) sponsors the annual event. Every year over 450 defense lawyers attend the seminar. Seminar topics ranged from: how to cross-examine expert witnesses to jury selection in the “#MeToo era.”
As Mr. Maynard runs a specialized “sex offense” law firm, he first discussed the important topic of how to avoid and/or improve the collateral consequence outcomes for clients accused of sex crimes. To illustrate, just a few examples of such consequences include:
Sex Offense Collateral Consequences:
- Employment restrictions
- Civil commitment
- International Megan’s Law
- Ban on possessing firearms
- Chemical castration
- Prohibited from being near public parks, schools, etc.
- Residency restrictions
- GPS monitoring
Next, Mr. Maynard shared advocacy techniques to help attorneys prevent or manage the damaging effects of a sex offense conviction for their clients. These techniques are ones drawn from Mr. Maynard’s own experience and success as a specialized sex crimes lawyer.
Finally, Mr. Maynard discussed constitutional legal theories and principles that lawyers can use to challenge sex offense laws. Moreover, Maynard Law Office, LLC, has achieved many significant legal victories using these theories.
Recent Legal Victory:
For example, Mr. Maynard argued and won State in the Interest of C.K. In this case, the NJ Supreme Court struck down the automatic imposition of lifetime Megan’s Law on juvenile adjudicants. In essence, the Court held that such individuals must be given the ability to petition to get off Megan’s Law. Even more, this case is just one of the firm’s many legal victories— all in the field of sex offense law.
