Defending Against False Allegations

False allegations of sexual assault or other sex crimes are devastating. Even when there is absolutely no question of your innocence, and even if you are never charged, the damage has been done. Your future, your work, your family and your children will be affected, and everything in your life will change. Is there anything that can be done to correct a terrible mistake such as this?

Do Not Wait to Obtain Experienced Legal Representation

Unfortunately, just waiting until you are acquitted at trial and exonerated will not be enough. It is important to have an advocate who can defend you in the court of public opinion before any legal proceedings take place. Otherwise, it may be difficult to obtain a fair trial, making your acquittal less certain.

Typical Sources of False Allegations

There are many sources of false allegations of sexual offenses, and our lawyer has encountered most of them. People in situations such as these may be vulnerable to false accusations of sex crimes:

  • Parents involved in divorce and child custody disputes
  • Teachers, clergy and other adults in authority over children
  • Unmarried couples in the midst of a breakup
  • Unmarried relatives living in the same household as children

If you have been falsely charged with rape, domestic violence or child abuse, whether or not you are in one of the situations described above, it is important to say nothing. Do not admit to a lesser sex offense in the hope that the matter will go away; it won't. A sex crime conviction will follow you for life, so it is critical to fight the charges.
