Clearwater Rape Defense Lawyers
If the words sexual assault or rape become associated with your name, you know that your reputation will almost always automatically become blemished. However, having a skilled Tampa sexual assault defense lawyer can help you minimize the impact these allegations may have on your record, reputation and record.
Be proactive. Even if you have been accused, but not charged, the criminal defense firm of Bauer Crider & Parry can help you deal with law enforcement and protect you against false allegations. If you are charged, you should contact us immediately so we can begin our own investigation to see if there is evidence to support the charges and if it has been collected properly. Do not even talk to law enforcement first to explain your side, because anything you say can be used against you later in a sex crimes case.
Not all rape or sexual assault charges are the same, but all can have devastating consequences. Often times a case boils down to the word of the accuser against the word of the accused. It is essential to find every fact that supports your side and our Tampa sexual assault defense lawyers, know how to track down witnesses, gather evidence, challenge the validity of statements and dissect the details that may prove innocence.
Unfortunately, any sexual assault charge carries a presumption of prison and also usually requires registering as a sex offender or as a predator if convicted of a sex crime. We will do our best to help you avoid these ramifications. Whether you have been charged with date rape or a different level of sexual assault or rape, that can carry a life sentence because the threat of great bodily harm or a weapon was used. We are here to minimize the charges by negotiating with the prosecutor.
