If You Are Facing Sex Crime Charges, Hire an Aggressive, Committed Attorney to Represent You
The United States justice system is built on the idea that the facts in a criminal proceeding can be determined by a jury or judge, and these facts can be discovered when the prosecution and defense regard each other as opponents. Under this system, the role of law enforcement officials and county prosecutors is to identify, through investigation, an individual as a suspect, and then, once an arrest is made and charges are filed, to obtain a conviction of that individual for the crime in question. As a result, when a criminal investigation is underway and you are considered a potential suspect, police and prosecutors are not your allies, but your adversaries. Accordingly, they may not be interested in protecting your rights, nor may they care whether their investigation injures your reputation, your social standing, or your personal relationships.

While the goal of the criminal justice system is to reach a valid and just result, the reality is that justice is not always served, particularly when law enforcement, with all the resources of government on its side and its intimate familiarity with how the criminal justice system works, is up against citizens who lack the specialized legal knowledge required to fully understand how their rights may be impacted. Under these circumstances, you need to make sure that you have someone in your corner who is prepared to defend your rights aggressively and committed to preserving your freedom. At Grabel & Associates, we understand what our clients are experiencing, and we know how to provide our clients with the tools they need to even the playing field. When you need legal advice and assistance in a sex crimes case, you can count on the law firm of Grabel & Associates.
