Accused of a Sex Crime? We Can Defend You and Restore Your Reputation.
There are hardly any other criminal accusations as damaging to your reputation as a sex crime. People will harshly judge you long before you ever get in front of the judge to plead your case and defend your innocence. When it comes to crimes of a sexual nature, presumptions of innocence are quickly destroyed the second anyone hears of the charges against you. If you’re accused of a sex crime, it’s critical that you contact an experienced attorney to protect your rights and defend your name.
Innocent? It doesn’t matter.
The unfortunate thing is, an innocent person needs an attorney just as much, if not more so than a guilty person. Sex crime convictions come with long prison sentences, and perhaps just as damaging, a conviction requires that you register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Even if you avoid jail time, the accusations of a single person can damage your reputation and haunt you forever.
Sex crimes are sometimes completely fabricated because of vengeance and the gamesmanship of divorce. At the Kerns Law Group, we recently defended a client accused of rape. Our client’s spouse accused them of rape to gain an unfair advantage in divorce court. But we were able to have the charges against our innocent client dismissed.
How can you defend yourself against a sex crime accusation?
Tragically, being accused of a sex crime is similar to having acid thrown on your face. You did nothing wrong, but you’ve been burned anyway, and the whole world can now see it.
If you’re accused of a sex crime, you may be tempted to speak to the police in a misguided effort to restore yourself. But talking to law enforcement is one of the most dangerous things you can do if you’re accused of a sex crime. You may inadvertently give the police damaging evidence against you. They do not care about your innocence, they only care about charging someone with a crime, any crime.
But, a defense attorney is in your corner, and they want to see your charges dropped as much as you do.
If you’ve been accused of a sex crime, you need to contact an experienced attorney. At the Kerns Law Group, we’re dedicated to protecting your innocence and seeing the charges against you dropped. Please don’t hesitate to contact us today for your free, confidential consultation.
