Being charged with a sex crime can have serious and life-changing effects for an individual. Oftentimes, sexual offense charges are based off of eyewitness statements alone. Having little evidence to support the charges, countless innocent individuals have been wrongfully charged with sex crimes.
Due to the nature of a sex crime, prosecutors will utilize any resource possible to gather evidence against the accused. Beware of self-incrimination.
