What Should I Do if I Have Been Charged With a Sex Offense?
If you are under investigation or have been charged with a sex crime in Big Rapids or anywhere else in Mecosta County, you cannot afford to let another day go by without contacting an experienced criminal defense attorney. Often, people assume that they can adequately protect their own interests, especially if they believe that the charges against them are false, exaggerated, or simply mistaken. But the reality is that the justice system is flawed and many individuals are treated unfairly.
The criminal justice system can also be overwhelming. Having an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney on your side gives you the best chance of preserving your legal rights. The truth is that law enforcement will take every opportunity to simplify their own jobs, by getting you to confess to a crime or to provide other evidence that may be used to incriminate you. In the process, you can forfeit your rights without even knowing it—unless you have an attorney to protect your legal interests.
The attorneys at Grabel & Associates are intimately familiar with what you are going through, and vastly experienced with how the criminal justice process works. Our criminal defense attorneys will help you to protect your rights at every stage of your case. We will protect your constitutional rights and strive to get charges dismissed or reduced, and, in many cases, we can even prevent charges from being formally filed if we know that law enforcement has illegally or improperly investigated the crime and/or improperly obtained evidence. Our team of aggressive criminal defense attorneys knows that a properly administered polygraph test, done before charges are even filed, can make a significant difference between charges being filed and not.
