How To Survive A Sex Crime Allegation: What You Need to Know
Sex offenses are different than any other type of crime. These charges are extremely serious and difficult to defend. One could honestly say that once an allegation has been made – especially involving a child, that the deck is stacked against you.
Juries hate these cases. District Attorney Offices have specialized units to prosecute these types of cases. The rules of evidence are different, and information that would never be allowed before a jury in a regular case can be admitted in a case involving allegations of sexual misconduct with a child. In short, these cases are very complex and the consequences are life-changing.
This book is designed to provide a basic understanding of some of the issues that arise when a person is either being investigated or has been charged with some sort of sexual misconduct. It is not a substitution for strong legal counsel. This book focuses mostly on child sexual assault allegations because those types of cases have special rules and considerations.
