When You are Facing Charges in a Sex Crimes Offense, You Need Exceptional Legal Defense Representation
When it comes to sex crimes, a full-blown criminal investigation can start with something as minor as a verbal accusation, before any hard evidence has even been found. Police and prosecutors must take such allegations seriously, and they cannot put their investigation on hold and risk the loss of key evidence. That pressure, as well as the emotional and scandalous nature of sex crimes, can also encourage law enforcement to undertake such investigations aggressively.
