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.
