You’ve Been Accused of Sexual Assault. What to Do Next.
Sexual assault offenses are among the most socially stigmatizing crimes in our society. If you have been accused of sexual assault or a related offense, it is vital to contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Without an experienced attorney at your side, you could face severe penalties, including decades in prison. If you are convicted, state law also requires your registration as a sex offender. It goes without saying that a sexual assault charge is one of the most life-changing criminal charges anyone can face. Don’t make the mistake of trusting your defense to just anyone.
Defending Against Rape Charges
I approach sex crimes cases by conducting a thorough investigation into the accusations as well as the circumstances surrounding the incident that gave rise to the allegations. More importantly, I listen to you and get your side of the story. Because rape allegations are frequently sensationalized by the media, it is also important to advocate on your behalf in the realm of public opinion. I know how to manage the media and help you avoid making statements that could hurt your case and your reputation.
I also assist you with speaking to the police and answering questions. Many people attempt to speak to the police without a skilled attorney present. Police officers and detectives are trained in interrogation techniques and know how to ask leading questions, create confusion, and make an innocent person doubt himself. Don’t allow yourself to be caught up in an investigation without a lawyer fighting hard on your behalf.
I challenge rape cases in a variety of ways. Many times, I can attack the specific charges on grounds that they are improper and that you should have been charged with a different offense. Because the prosecution must prove each and every element of a criminal charge, it is very important that they charge you properly. I also attack the prosecution’s discovery methods, including police reports, DNA evidence, statements from alleged witnesses, security camera footage, and crime scene evidence. In some cases, it is also appropriate to use forensic investigators to cast doubt on evidence gathered by crime scene investigators.
