How To Defend Against a Sex Crime Allegation

Due to the potential consequences of a sex crime case, it is imperative that you have a hard-hitting Queens criminal defense attorney by your side.

A few of the defenses used in sex crime cases include:

  • False Allegations - If you are innocent, that is an obvious defense.
  • Marriage - If the alleged offender is married to the alleged victim, this could serve as a defense.
  • Illegally Obtained Evidence - You could have evidence suppressed if the search or seizure were illegal.
  • Tainted Interviews or Witnesses - If a child or another person suffers from tainted interviews, the conduct of the interrogation can result in invalid evidence.

Let us help analyze the evidence in your case in order to find the best possible criminal defense to build on your behalf. One of the most important steps to take after being accused of a sex crime is to have a criminal defense lawyer investigate potential motivations of the accuser. All too often, the accuser has an underlying motivation when claiming that they have been the victim of a sex crime. For example, if they are in the midst of a child custody battle, they may claim that the other party committed a sex crime in order to gain an advantage against the other party in family court.

Consequences of a Sex Crime Conviction

New York's Penal Law lists the potential prison sentences of a sex crime. The penalties and sentences vary according to the severity of the offense in question along with the existence of prior offenses.
