Sex Crimes

Sex crimes have a strong negative stigma in our society and rape in particular is considered to be a particularly heinous act. As with any violent crime, when someone has been raped or molested, law enforcement officers aggressively seek an arrest and the judicial system aims to prosecute the alleged perpetrator. When you are targeted in a police investigation you have no time to lose. Your need for a rigorous defense of your rights will never be greater.
