Stand For Your Rights And Get Qualified Legal Counsel On Your Side
One thing is clear at this difficult time: You should get legal counsel as soon as possible. If you are aware of rumors or an investigation into allegations of sexual assault, do not wait to see what happens before taking action. Your freedom and your future are at risk. If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, act now to protect your rights, including:
- A right to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures.
- A right not to be arrested except when there is probable cause
- A right not to have to be a witness against yourself
- A right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury
- The right to be informed of the nature and causes of the accusation against you
- The right to have legal counsel in your defense
- The right to avoidance of excessive bail requirements
Even if you have not been officially charged, public knowledge of accusations of sexual offenses can be damaging. We can advise you of ways to mitigate the damage. If your case has a high profile and may be discussed in the media or social media, we can assist in protecting your reputation and the assumption of innocence until proven guilty.
What if a prosecutor, judge or jury finds you committed the crime? A conviction may bring even harsher consequences, including likely jail or prison time, high dollar fines and sex crime registry listing. Once your name is on a sex crime registry, even after you serve jail time and otherwise fulfill your debt to society, you will face limitations as to where you can live, among other repercussions. Your rights and your future are worth fighting for. Our attorneys are here to fight on your behalf.
