In any criminal case where a child is the alleged victim, emotions run high. This is especially true of child sex offenses.
Prosecutors are likely under a lot of public pressure to secure a conviction and a harsh sentence. Defendants may find their lives turned upside-down by government intrusion and media attention.
Many people who have been accused of sex offenses involving a child need more than just a competent legal defense. They also need the help of an attorney who understands and will fight to minimize the long-term impact of these serious allegations.
Fighting Child Sex Offense Charges
Prosecutors routinely pursue child sex offense charges based only upon suspicion and false allegations, but that does not mean that someone accused can rely on the truth to come out on its own. Police and prosecutors concern themselves with convictions and will go to great legnths to bolster the credibility of an accuser. This is especially true if the accuser is a child. These are high-stakes cases that require a truly dedicated defense lawyer. These cases must also be handled with a degree of sensitivity that only comes with years of experience.
When it comes to sex crimes against children, we have the skill and experience to challenge the prosecutor's version of events without alienating the judge or jury. Our firm's ability to offer both a male and female attorney to defend against allegations of a sex crime against a child helps soften that inherent sympathy a jury will feel toward the child.
