Defenses Against Sex Crime Charges

Some common defenses against sex crime charges may include:

  • Consent: Demonstrating that the alleged actions were consensual can be a powerful defense strategy. This requires a thorough examination of the facts surrounding the encounter.
  • False Accusations: Sex crime cases sometimes involve false accusations driven by motives such as revenge, jealousy, or personal vendettas. Our attorneys diligently investigate to expose any inconsistencies or ulterior motives behind the charges.
  • Lack of Evidence: A strong defense may focus on challenging the prosecution's evidence, highlighting gaps or inconsistencies that cast doubt on the case's validity.
  • Mistaken Identity: Cases involving mistaken identity can arise, and we work diligently to establish a credible alibi or present evidence that challenges the accuracy of eyewitness accounts.
  • Fourth Amendment Violations: Unlawful searches or seizures can compromise the integrity of evidence. Our legal team scrutinizes police conduct to identify and challenge any violations of constitutional rights.
  • Statute of Limitations: Asserting that the charges were filed beyond the statute of limitations can be a potent defense, rendering the prosecution's case legally invalid.
