Minneapolis-St. Paul Lawyers Defending People Charged With Sex Crimes
If you have been accused of a sex crime, it can feel like you have already been found guilty in the court of public opinion. You may be shunned by friends, family, and colleagues. Often times these allegations are from days, weeks, months or years ago. You may feel like there’s no way to prove your innocence even though you know the accuser is intentionally lying. You may lose your job before you ever get a chance to tell your side of the story.
We help people who are being investigated for a sex crime, as well as people who have been charged with a sex crime. Sometimes, before you are charged with a crime, we can convince law enforcement that the allegations are not true. Other times, after you are charged with criminal sexual conduct, we can aggressively defend you at trial or reach a favorable resolution to your case, depending on the facts.
We have taken these cases to trial and won, even where another lawyer was losing the case. We have had other cases dismissed, such as a military member that was falsely accused by a military officer. And we have obtained reduced charges for clients and saved them from lengthy prison sentences. There are a variety of reasons for false allegations and as skilled St. Paul, criminal defense attorneys, we are prepared to seek the truth for you and protect you from these damaging allegations.
We also protect students accused in sexual misconduct scenarios at colleges and universities, including Title IX matters.
If you are found guilty in a court of law, the consequences can be severe. You may go to prison for many years, be required to register as a sex offender, lose the ability to have time with your children, and find it hard to get a job or a place to live if convicted.
