An Accusation With Serious Consequences

A person is supposed to be presumed innocent until he or she is convicted in a court. Unfortunately, when you are accused of a sex offense, many people — including the police and prosecution — tend to believe the victim.

Few criminal charges are more damaging to a person's reputation than a sex offense. Few criminal charges carry more devastating consequences, including a lengthy prison sentence and possible lifetime sex offender registration.

The two main defense approaches would be to attack the factual basis of the prosecution or to say the sex was consensual. One reason you should not discuss the charges with anyone other than your attorney is that you could inadvertently say something that undermines a potential defense or is not consistent with the facts police already know.
