Criminal Charges For Sex Offenses | The Legal Process

Being charged with a sexual offense does not mean you are guilty. False accusations can and do happen. After an allegation is made, charges may be brought against you, and you will be arrested. Before that happens, you will have the opportunity to gather evidence and witnesses to create a strong defense against the allegations. This is where you need an experienced lawyer with a robust criminal law background to help guide you through this process.
