Are You Implicated in a Sex Crime? Get an Aggressive, Skilled Attorney on Your Side
If you have been questioned about, implicated in, or accused of a sex crime in the city of Lapeer or anywhere else in Lapeer County, you don’t need to talk to the police. In fact, your best option is not to speak to anyone not even friends or family until you have obtained the advice and assistance of an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer. Unfortunately, even people who think they have nothing to hide may find that they have sacrificed important rights by speaking to law enforcement or to others about an ongoing criminal investigation. Remember, all it may take to initiate a sex crime case is a verbal accusation, even in the absence of any hard evidence. And when a criminal charge rests upon a “he said, she said” foundation, you cannot always count on justice being served as many defendants have found out to their dismay.
