If You Are Accused of a Sex Crime Offense, Contact an Experienced Defense Attorney
Sometimes, people assume that they can adequately protect their own interests when they are implicated in a crime, especially if they believe that the charges against them are false, exaggerated, or simply mistaken. But the reality is that the “justice” system does not always dispense justice. Unlike crime stories in movies and on television, the truth does not always prevail. Law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, and courts often make mistakes, and often do not respect the rights of the accused.
