Criminal accusations come with a presumption of innocence. The accusation of a sexual motivated offense results in the immediate judgment of family, friends and the community at large.
Often these cases are based solely on the accusation of the alleged witness with no evidence that corroborates the accusation. Once the allegation has been made, the alleged victim may be under tremendous pressure to stick to the false allegation.
The most important thing you can do after an allegation is contact an experienced criminal attorney to defend you against the charges.
Your criminal defense attorney can make sure that you properly invoke your right to remain silent. Your attorney can gather and preserve evidence that might otherwise be lost with the passage of time. Your attorney can work with the District Attorney’s Office so that all exculpatory and mitigating evidence is presented before any formal charges are filed.
In Georgia, an attorney experienced in fighting false allegations of a sexually motivated offense can help you clear your name. Aside from the social stigma that comes with being accused of sexual offenses, Georgia has serious legal penalties that include long prison sentences, stiff fines and an official registry for convicted sexual offenders.
Once a person is convicted of a sex crime and placed in the registry, the person has oppressive restrictions related to where the person accused of the crime can live or work.
