How Will Schwartz Law Firm Help Me Fight These Accusations?
The mere accusation of criminal sexual conduct can cause irreversible damage to the accused. This is true even if the accusation is false and the formal charges are never filed. Therefore, if one person wants to harm another, filing charges of sexual abuse or assault may present an all-too convenient opportunity. This is, of course, a gross abuse of our criminal justice system.
The first way to combat such allegations is to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. We will demand that the prosecution produce direct witnesses and evidence. Because sex crimes are generally private in nature, there is frequently no one else to testify about the crime except you and the accuser. If there is no other evidence to corroborate the accusation, then the entire case rests on the accuser's testimony. Our firm may be able to challenge the credibility of an accuser.
Is he or she the kind of person who might lie about something like this? Could he or she be remembering an event that didn't happen? Most importantly, can the jury put so much trust in the accuser's statements that they conclude the defendant is guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt"?
Often, they cannot. At the Schwartz Law Firm, we work hard to protect your freedom. If you need rape defense in Warren, Michigan, or Macomb County, contact us online or call 888-757-1681 for a free initial consultation.
