Sex crimes, such as sexual battery, rape, and child molestation, are often some of the most difficult cases to deal with.
People accused of such crimes are regularly treated as guilty by not only law enforcement, but also by their peers, friends, family, and sometimes even the people they hire to help them. This is not only inhumane, hypocritical, and unkind, but it is also unconstitutional.
The 6th Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees the right to “Assistance of Counsel.” Further, the 5th Amendment requires that no person “shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…”.
What this means for you is that if you believe that you may be the subject of, or have been arrested for, an investigation into a possible sex crime, you should exercise your right to have an attorney by talking to an attorney first before speaking to law enforcement investigators.
These are serious crimes that require an attorney with experience to help you. These cases carry prison sentences, sexual predator registration, and other life-long consequences.
