Don't Try to Navigate the Criminal Justice Process Without the Aid of an Experienced Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
Sex crimes cases can seem deceptively simple, but they often become very complex. While the elements of a crime may be easy to spell out, sex crime cases can often turn on contradictory and confusing evidence. For example, accounts of what happened by witnesses, including the victim, to a sex crime are often colored by their emotions and their perceptions in times of high stress, fear, or excitement, and conflicting stories are not uncommon. If your case may depend, ultimately, on a "he said, she said" scenario, you cannot afford to risk your freedom and your future on the bare hope that things will turn out okay, or that the truth will suddenly become clear. More often than not, what really happened does not become clearer with time, but instead becomes more ambiguous.
