False allegations are common. Studies have shown that up to one third of sexual abuse allegations are false. A National Study of Child Abuse (Smith, 1985) estimated that 1.1 million child abuse and neglect reports are filed with state agencies each year and that more than 600,000 of these probably cannot be substantiated.

Pursuing a Favorable Outcome in Your Sex Crime Case

We work closely with our clients and conduct extensive investigations in order to develop the greatest possible leverage for negotiating a favorable resolution with the prosecution or preparing your trial defense. Keep in mind that the government needs to prove every fact essential to your conviction beyond a reasonable doubt. We look for weaknesses in the state's evidence, circumstances that can weaken the credibility of the witnesses against you, and the aspects of the evidence that can create doubt in the minds of the jurors.

The more of this leverage we can accumulate through our investigations in the early stages of the case, the better our chances of convincing the prosecution to drop or reduce the charges against you. If it becomes necessary to take your case to trial, our trial experience can give you the effective representation you need before a jury.
