Sex Crimes and Rape (Sexual Battery)

If you have had to ask yourself any of the following questions, call us right away:

  1. I have been accused of a sex crime.  How do I defend myself against such an accusation?
  2. It’s her word against mine.  Doesn’t the guy usually lose in that situation?
  3. My ex-girlfriend says I raped her.  How can I prove I didn’t when we have had consensual sex so many times in the past?
  4. It’s hopeless, isn’t it?  I mean, I can’t prove what was in her mind at the moment we were having sex.
  5. This is going to cost a fortune to defend, isn’t it?

These are perfectly understandable questions and there are good answers to every one of them.  But every case is different.  While our clients get themselves into pretty tough situations sometimes, it’s our job to help them by navigating the criminal justice system.  It’s never hopeless and defending yourself against these crimes is not impossible.  But the lawyer you hire can greatly affect the outcome.

Being convicted of a sex crime will most likely affect you for the rest of your life.  There are no two ways about it.  Times have changed and the information age is here.  Aside from a prison sentence and the general effect on your reputation and your personal relationships, you will be required to register as a sex offender indefinitely. This can prevent you from getting a job and can control where you live and travel.

We have defended many of these types of cases in the past – successfully.

Sex crimes make up a significant portion of the cases we handle.  Whether the charge involves sexual battery or child molestation, we understand that such an accusation can have a significant impact on your life and the lives of your family.  What a lot of people do not understand about the criminal justice system in Florida is that a sex crime allegation does not have to be supported by any other evidence.  This means that if a person accuses you of rape (and the prosecutor believes that accuser), you can be taken to trial by jury on that accusation.

Fighting for your Freedom and your Future

Our job is to fight and win your case.  There is little worse than being accused of a terrible crime.  Just the accusation can cost you your job, your marriage, your friends, your home, and not to mention the social stigma associated with it all.  Our job is to be on your side and in your corner no matter how bad the situation may appear to be.  Our clients understand that they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  The prosecutors better have their case together when they are up against one of our clients.  We fight all the way on these types of cases because the stakes are so high.  We have the experience.  We have the reputation.  We have the tools necessary to fight and win your case.

Many sex crimes today stem from online activity.  Forensic scientists can analyze your computer and bring serious Internet sex crime charges against you based on very little evidence.  It is extremely important to hire a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible if you even suspect you may be under investigation for any sex crime. Properly defending these cases takes a lot of work – and you want someone who has done it before. . . successfully.
