Sexual Assault and other Sexual Crimes
Being charged with a sex crime is extremely stressful. You may be facing up to life in prison or having to register as a sex offender. Further, a conviction can ruin your reputation, destroy your family and cause you to lose your job.
According to the principles of the American criminal justice system, defendants are “innocent until proven guilty”. Unfortunately, the reality is that innocents often suffer when prosecutors, law enforcement officers and the media forget that everyone has a right to a fair trial.
Contrary to what you might see at the movies or on television shows, most criminal charges are not brought because law enforcement and the prosecutor have solid scientific evidence “proving” a crime. Everyday innocent people are arrested and accused of horrible crimes based upon nothing more than an unproven and unsubstantiated allegation.
If you are accused of Sexual Assault or any Sex Crime:
DO NOT GIVE A STATEMENT TO LAW ENFORCEMENT
DO NOT AGREE TO PROVIDE A DNA SAMPLE
