Protecting Your Name And Your Freedom

Perhaps more than any other crime, sex crimes have an extremely negative stigma attached to them. Because the public is so quick to condemn those who have only been accused of a sex crime, prosecutors in Indiana are often under immense pressure to obtain convictions. For this reason, it is important to work with a seasoned criminal defense lawyer who is willing to fight to protect your name and your freedom.

I am attorney Dorie A. Maryan, and I understand you may be frightened if you are facing sex crime charges. I am here to help. I will do everything I can to protect you from the harsh consequences of a sex crime conviction — including mandatory registration as a sex offender. I represent people throughout the Indianapolis area who are charged with many types of sex crimes, including:

  • Sexual battery
  • Rape
  • Child molestation
  • Prostitution

Never forget you are innocent until proven guilty. If you work with me, I will aggressively pursue a favorable outcome to your case.

Understanding The Sex Offender Registry

Many people have likely heard of the sex offender registry, but do you know exactly what it entails? In Indiana, if you are convicted of a sex offense, you are required to provide personal information — including your name and age, your physical description, a photo of yourself and your home address — for publication on the sex offender registry. All of this information is public record — meaning anyone can access it.

Registering as a sex offender can affect countless areas of your life, including your ability to keep a job, your personal relationships and your ability to seek housing. Let me help protect you. With 15 years of experience, I know what it takes to build a strong defense against sex crimes charges. I am prepared to fight to clear your name.
