The following is information on how to build the strongest possible defense for a sex crime charge in Pennsylvania. To learn more about sex crimes offenses and give yourself the best chance at minimizing the harm of your charges, consult with a Philadelphia sex crimes lawyer today.
Time, place and manner of an alleged sexual assault are key factors in any defense. Starting with the victim’s motive to lie and then when and where an event occurred a defense can be made for a sexual act. Did the victim immediately report what occurred to police? Were other individuals nearby? Did the victim call for help? Was there a prior relationship between the two? These questions need to be answered and once that is done a defense can be built around the entire incident.
Philadelphia is unique in the prosecution of sex offenses in that these offenses are treated with a high level of care and carry harsh sentences. Philadelphia Courts have a special courtroom for these offenses and because of the often heinous allegations judges tend to treat those accused as guilty from the outset. Therefore an accused needs an experienced Philadelphia sex crimes attorney in their corner.
