Sexual Assault

The experienced defense team at Grabel & Associates understands how frequently people are wrongfully accused of committing sex crimes. We hear from clients who were in the wrong place at the wrong time or made an honest mistake. Sexual assault is a very serious charge that needs an aggressive and skilled lawyer to defend. Generally, sexual assault will be charged under the crime of criminal sexual conduct. The specific criminal charge will depend on the factual allegations and the prosecutor's charging discretion. If you, or someone you know, is being investigated for or have already been charged with a sexual assault, start protecting your rights immediately. A conviction can mean a lengthy prison sentence and registration on the Michigan Public Sex Offender Registry. Our aggressive sex crimes attorneys fight hard on behalf of our clients to dismantle the prosecutor's case against you and secure your freedom.

The Lack Of Visible Physical Injury Or Witnesses To An Alleged Sexual Assault Does Not Stop A Prosecutor From Charging You!

In fact, the vast majority of sexual assault cases that are prosecuted do not have any visible physical injury to the alleged victim, and there are generally no witnesses to the alleged assault. These cases are prosecuted on a regular basis, even though the evidence of an assault is weak or the accuser lacks credibility. Most sexual assault cases generally come down to "one-on-one" credibility contests between the accuser and the accused in which one small fact or discrepancy may tip the scales of credibility to one side. Grabel & Associates brings a high degree of technical sophistication and vast knowledge in analyzing every detail of police reports, medical reports, toxicology reports, and any other investigative documentation to identify information that often will significantly weaken a prosecutor's case against our clients.

Determining A Motive Is Key To A Strong Defense

People do make up false allegations and their motives for doing so are wide and varied: jealously, revenge, attention, leverage in custody proceedings, and cover-ups, are just a few. In some cases, the motive is not readily apparent.

False allegations can be made by either children or adults. A child may have been subject to influence by another person, such as a parent with a personal agenda or one seeking revenge. In some cases, the allegations may develop from an overactive imagination based upon something a child has seen, heard, or experienced somewhere else. In other cases, it may be that a child or person is angry and it is that person's way of "striking back." Determining the motive of the accuser is critical to defending a sex crimes case. Our dedicated team of lawyers and investigators explore every facet of the accuser, family members, friends, or acquaintances to uncover any potential motive that can undermine the accuser's credibility.
