San Diego Sexual Assault Attorney

Make Sure Your Rights are Protected

It is extremely dangerous to be accused of sexual assault in our state. All sex crimes carry severe penalties, and usually require that the convicted be registered on the Sex Offender Registry. A conviction on a charge of sexual assault can land you in state prison for years. When children or underage young people are involved the penalties will be even more extreme.

Accusations of assault can come about through a variety of circumstances, and a false accusation is not uncommon. When a person decides to accuse another of sexual assault, whether through vindictiveness or after a consensual encounter that they later regret, the accused can suffer severe repercussions even before being convicted. There is a tendency to side with the alleged victim in any such case, and overcoming this natural bias is part of the job of your criminal lawyer.

Defending Sexual Assault Cases in San Diego

The penalties for sexual assault vary based upon the accusation. Rape is a form of sexual assault that can lead to years spent in state prison upon conviction. In fact, any form of unwanted sexual contact is now called "sexual assault." This can include aggravated sexual assault when injury took place. When a weapon is used, the penalties are increased. If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with any form of sexual assault, it is critical that you act quickly in retaining the services of our San Diego criminal defense lawyer at The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC.

Without a creative and aggressive defense lawyer, you could be convicted even if you are completely innocent. Innocence is not enough - if you have been arrested and charged, the prosecutor fully believes that they have the evidence in hand to convict. You need an equally dedicated attorney that is willing to go the distance in defending your case.
