In our experience, an individual charged with a sex crime will likely endure more life changing consequences than any other type of charge. Often, these are charges were there is little to no physical evidence, alcohol or other mind-altering substances are involved, there are no witnesses to the alleged criminal act (other than the alleged victim) and it becomes one persons word against another.
Due to the nature of the charge and the severity of the consequences on your life, the lives of your family, and your freedom, an individual accused of a sex crime needs an experienced criminal defense attorney. If possible, it is critical to contact a Seattle sexual assault attorneyin the investigation stage (while the police are active in their investigation and prior to the police sending their report to the prosecutor's office for formal filing of charges). This is a part of the case that is critical in gathering evidence for both the State and the defense.
The police investigating these allegations are generally very experienced and know exactly what to do and how to do it, while individuals accused of these charges are generally in a situation they have never been in before and don't know what to do. An experienced criminal defense attorney can allow a suspect the opportunity to know all their rights at this crucial stage. Even if not convicted, you risk having the stigma of a sex crimes offense charge trailing your reputation and your life.
