Sex crimes and child abuse charges can be among the most difficult cases to defend and carry some of the most severe penalties in criminal law. Even an allegation in these types of charges can have a significant and long-lasting negative effect on an accused person's personal and professional life.
Often individuals accused of these types of crimes feel like they are being treated as though they are guilty until proven innocent based on evidence that frequently consists only of hearsay, innuendo, rumor and suspicion. Therefore, it is imperative that a person accused of these types of crimes retain legal counsel that is highly skilled and experienced in defending against these types of allegations. Many criminal defense attorneys simply do not have the experience and conviction to aggressively defend against these types of charges.
