Felony Child Abuse*


Felony Child Abuse – Sexual Act (2 Counts) (N.C.G.S. § 318.4) Contributing to Delinquency of a Juvenile (2 Counts) (N.C.G.S. § 14-316.1)


North Carolina vs. ''Confidential Client' - Attorney Patrick Roberts successfully defended a client who was accused of aiding and abetting child sexual abuse by allegedly allowing her son to molest her daughters. Mr. Roberts, a seasoned sexual abuse defense lawyer, effectively challenged these accusations, asserting that the client was unaware of her son's actions. The negotiations resulted in a plea to a lesser charge of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Child. The client was granted a Prayer for Judgment Continued, which preserved her nursing license. The additional charges of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Juvenile and Felony Child Abuse by a Sexual Act were dropped.

What Clients Say About Attorney Patrick Roberts As ASex OffenseLawyer:

This lawyer is the real deal!


February 10, 2014

“Mr. Patrick is a true professional. I have never in my life been in a position where my character was questioned, and Mr. Patrick's did a great job of keeping it that way. He was not at all judgmental and all too assuring about the positive outcome of my case, which helped me sleep better at night considering the consequences I was facing.

I was a first time offender so I was terrified at the possible 4-6 years I was facing but thanks to Mr. Roberts' extensive experience in the field, and good relations within the system he was ultimately able to reduce that sentence to 4 years of probation among other minor conditions. I am sure that I could not have been represented in a better way... and strongly recommend anyone who has an issue with the law to choose Mr. Andy Patrick Roberts.”
