IMPACTING YOUR LIFE
When you’re accused of sexual assault, the stakes are high, and everything is on the line. While an accusation is not the same as a conviction, it can still have a negative impact on your life — changing how others see and treat you. And if convicted, it goes on your permanent record and will cost you money in fines as well as your reputation and even your career.
Most sexual assault convictions will require you to register as a sex offender. The stigma associated with being convicted of a sex crime can ruin your life — reputation and financial security — and even the lives of those around you.
Talk to an Attorney First.
If accused of a sex crime, your first instinct is to defend yourself. However, anything you say to a friend, family member or law enforcement official may be used as evidence against you. And if it’s a loved one accused, you will want to defend them, which could negatively impact the case.
With nearly two decades of experience handling sexual assault cases, I understand how Arkansas laws and the statute of limitations will impact your case. Don’t try to defend yourself or hope that the truth will come out on its own, talk to me first and I will help defend your reputation and rights.
The Role of Evidence and Credibility
Sexual assault cases rely heavily on the credibility of the victim. When representing those accused of sexual assault, I know how to evaluate the evidence, police reports and their handling of the case, testimony and the credibility of the accusor. I promise to diligently investigate all aspects of the allegation to ensure that your rights were not violated, that you are being treated fairly and to build an effective defense strategy.
