Minneapolis-St. Paul Lawyers Defending People Charged With Sex Crimes Nationwide
If you have been charged with a sex crime, you can feel like you have already been found guilty in the court of public opinion. You may be shunned by friends, family and colleagues. You may lose your job before you ever get a chance to tell your side of the story.
If you are found guilty in a court of law, the consequences can be severe. Even after you serve your sentence, you may be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. You may find it hard to get a job or a place to live, and difficult to have a relationship.

Defenses Against Sex Crime Allegations
These cases require a lawyer who understands sex crime defenses, knows how to deal with forensic evidence and is skilled at cross examining expert witnesses. Most of all, it requires a lawyer who believes that innocent people are charged with sex crimes frequently.
Some alleged sex crimes are “he said, she said” cases, in which the people involved may have widely different interpretations of events. What one person considered consensual sex, the other may describe as rape. Sometimes the accuser has an ulterior motive for making the allegation. Other times mental health issues may be involved. Sex crime allegations can involve age differences between two people who honestly love each other and want to be together.
