The criminal justice system comes down hard on those who are convicted of sexual assault or rape. The penalties can include many years spent in state prison with other convicted felons, and once you are finally released, you will be required to register as a sex offender - with the information about you available to anyone who has a computer. It is vital that you have strong legal representation if you are accused of this criminal offense. Fast action on the part of your defense attorney is crucial. All the evidence against you must be fully analyzed without delay in order to determine how our defense team will proceed.
There are many cases in which the individual accused of this offense was innocent. In some cases, the sexual activity was consensual and later one party had a "change of heart" and claimed that it was forced upon them; there are cases of mistaken identity in which an individual is wrongly accused, and in other cases, the legal system was used to harm another when a bitter break up or other problem existed between two people. Whatever your situation and no matter how serious the charge, you have the right to an attorney, and it should be an experienced and aggressive attorney. Move quickly in contacting our office, and ensure you stay quiet until our defense lawyer arrives to protect your rights in any questioning.
