Being charged with a sex offense or sex crime such as Rape, Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse, Sexual Assault, Indecent Assault or any other sex crime is a shocking and devastating event. The mere allegation of any of these crimes can lead to criminal charges even if there is little to no physical or corroborating evidence. Often times these cases are “he said” versus “she said”.
When I am hired to represent someone charged with these crimes, I take an aggressive approach and utilize various investigative techniques in an effort to seek the truth and build a solid defense. In previous cases, I have obtained information regarding the alleged victim’s background to determine if he or she has a history of lodging false sex crime accusations against other people. Several years ago, I represented an individual who was charged with repeatedly raping a woman he did not know. At trial, I was able to show the jury through various pieces of evidence that the victim was not telling the truth and that she, in fact, knew my client. The story she told the police and the Emergency Room personnel simply didn’t add up once all the evidence was fully analyzed and pieced together properly. The jury found my client not guilty as a result of good old fashioned hard work.
I provide comprehensive and aggressive representation to clients facing a range of sex offense charges, including:
