In many sex crime cases, those accused trust that the police care about their side of story and will help clear their name. This is simply not true. Police will do and say anything, including side with you, just to get you comfortable and talking to them. They will try and get you to say anything that can incriminate yourself, so that they can file charges.
What you need to know is that sex crime cases rely heavily on an investigation that includes gathering evidence, getting any witness statements, and getting your statements. Do not get tricked into thinking the police are your friends and want to help you out of this bad situation. They just want to twist your words to their favor or get you to confess to a crime. The best way you can prevent any of this is to invoke your right to an attorney and say nothing until your lawyer is present. You have the right to refuse to answer any questions or provide any statements. Your lawyer will be the one to protect you from any unfair police tactics and make sure your case is handled justly. This is what sex crime defense lawyers do, and this is what you will get when you call our Jacksonville Sex Crime Lawyers at Whittel & Melton.
We firmly believe that every sex crime accusation merits its own investigation and that you are innocent until proven guilty. We will launch our own investigation into the charges against you to uncover our own evidence in order to use this to your advantage at trial. We can find any motives or contradicting statements made by the “victim” or witnesses that may help to prove your innocence. Our goal is to show reasonable doubt with the hopes of having the state’s case against you dismissed.
Make no mistake – sex crimes are very tricky cases to defend due to the intense emotions involved. While it may seem that everyone has sided with the victim, you have rights under the law, including telling your version of events. We will fight aggressively to keep the emotional aspect from overshadowing what really may have happened. Let us help you tell your story. We don’t want you to face the judge alone. Call us now at 866-608-5529 or contact us online for a free initial consultation. We can begin representing you as soon as you contact us.
