Honolulu Sex Crime Attorney

Protecting the Rights of Clients Accused of Sex Crimes

Have you been charged with a sex crime? If so, you are likely facing very serious charges which could result in lengthy imprisonment and heavy fines. In addition, you will probably have to register as a lifetime sex offender. Registration as a sex offender can seriously impact your life as you will be viewed as an outcast in many social circles and your future employment may be affected.

At the Law Offices of Steve Cedillos, it is my responsibility to hold the prosecutors accountable and uphold your constitutional rights. I have been practicing as a sex crime lawyer in Honolulu for more than 25 years and I can help you defend your case.

I am here to hear your side of the story. Call (808) 201-0496 today.

Types of Sex Crimes

A person suspected of committing any illegal sexual conduct may be charged with one of the following offenses:

  • Child Pornography: an individual that knowingly possesses visual materials of a minor child engaging in a sexual act may be accused of child pornography. Persons that are selling, trafficking, or promoting child pornography may be given additional charges.
  • Indecent Exposure: persons exposing private areas of their bodies in a public setting with the intent of gratifying another or being careless to the presence of others may be charged with a Class B misdemeanor.
  • Prostitution: if an individual is found to be charging a fee for sexual conduct, that person could be charged with prostitution, a class A misdemeanor. Persons who invest, own, or house prostitutes could be charged with a more serious crime of a third-degree felony.
  • Sexual Assault: a person that coerces, threatens, or forces another person to engage in a sexual act may be charged with sexual assault. This crime may include offenses such as rape or molestation.

    "Would I hire him again? Absolutely."
    I hired Steve for a child custody case in 2021. I see all the reviews that say he is "mean" or "rude" - I would say that he is just blunt and straightforward. He isn't going to get your hopes up just to preserve your feelings. Great guy. he is willing to answer your questions before you even hire him and you can bet that he's honest. Do I think that a 5k retainer was a lot for my case? Yes, but it IS Hawaii and I did hire him 2 months before my actual trial date after going pro-se for a while. Would I hire him again? Absolutely.

    Steve Cedillos is definitely worth it. He’s very straightforward and gets the job done! Helped me get a TRO I probably wouldn’t have been able to do alone. Navigating the justice system isn’t easy, but his help made it so much easier along with a great outcome!! Thankful and grateful I came across him on Google. He was very responsive anytime I needed to reach him. Highly recommended.
