When a person is accused of a sex crime, many people are quick to label them guilty, even though many sex crime charges are often dropped or reduced. Police will aggressively investigate you in efforts to uncover evidence that points to your guilt, not your innocence, and prosecuting attorneys will frame their case to focus only on the details that can secure a conviction. You need a talented legal advocate on your side to balance the scales by providing a thorough review of evidence and an alternate view on what truly happened in your case.
