Sexual Assault/Rape

If You’ve Been Charged With Sexual Assault,
You Need An Experienced Defense Lawyer

Innocent until proven guilty. It is a cornerstone of the American justice system. Yet, if you’ve been charged with rape, the stigma of a sexual crime can put your innocence in question, raise every questionable aspect of your character and do irreparable harm to your reputation whether or not it is deserved.

When the stakes are high, Big Valley Law has the experience to defend those who face being charged with sex crimes. We have built a reputation for criminal defense.

We understand. The modern dating scene can be both exciting and dangerous. Things don’t always end well. Alcohol can fuel the fire and lead to false charges against an innocent person. Parents of an underage child may file statutory rape charges even though the sex was consensual, or even if both parties said they were in love. Law enforcement officials may only have the accuser’s word to go on. And worse, if the accused refuses to cooperate in giving DNA samples because he or she thinks the charges are bogus, that refusal can just add to the appearance of guilt.

You will be in a situation that delves into details of your personal life and your relationship history. Your character and your habits will come under attack. You need to know how to protect your rights while defending your innocence. The key is to get cleared of all charges and keep your identity out of the national sexual offender database.

Sexual assault. The charges are life-altering.
We know the defense strategies that will help.
