We’re aware of the challenges that come with being charged with a sex offense: serious consequences that stigmatize a person and threaten everything from your job to your relationships. We’re also aware that sex offense allegations are never as black-and-white as they appear in the police report.
Depending on our client’s needs, we focus our defense on either investigation or treatment. That can mean learning more about the alleged offense and the relationship from which it stems, to make sure that everyone can hear your side of the story. In some cases, that can also mean making sure that someone who has a problem gets the proper treatment.
In either situation, we defend sex cases by assembling a mountain of mitigation that shows the person you really are: Everything from reference letters from your friends and family to your school records. It’s easy to demonize someone you’ve only read about in a police report, but we’ve found that when we provide evidence that you’re more than what you’ve been charged with, judges and prosecutors become less interested in punishing the person in the offense report and more interested in working with the one who actually exists.
