5 Defense Strategies for Sex Crime Charges

When investigating your sex crime charges, our skilled lawyers seek opportunities to create a strong defense. Taking the time to listen to your story, gather evidence, and interview witnesses helps us create a defense strategy that minimizes your chance of receiving penalties. Potential defenses against sex crime charges include the following:

False Accusations

Unfortunately, people falsely accuse others of serious, life-altering offenses like sex crimes. If this is the case for you, our attorneys can help you gather evidence that proves the accuser’s allegations against you were fabricated, exaggerated, or simply untrue. 


Consent may be a viable defense if the accuser willingly participated in sexual activity and gave a valid form of consent. Our attorneys can use witness testimony, text messages, phone records, and other communications to prove this defense. 

Mistaken Identity

Perhaps your accuser was the victim of a sex crime, but the police charged the wrong person. If you have been accused of a sex crime due to mistaken identity, our team of lawyers can use this strategy along with DNA evidence, evidence proving you were elsewhere when the crime occurred, and witness testimony to get your charges dismissed.

Biased Accuser

If you are going through a divorce or custody dispute, your former spouse or partner may accuse you of a sex crime to get full custody or an advantage during the divorce process. Our lawyers can help determine if your accuser has an ulterior motive for the allegation or if they are biased against you. 

Police Violated Rights

When police obtain evidence against you, they must respect your right to privacy, avoid making unreasonable or baseless arrests, and make unnecessary searches and seizures. If an officer fails to do this, your charges may be reduced or dropped.
