A conviction for a sex offense will have a lifetime of adverse consequences. Sex offense registration is required in California and every other state. In many communities, a registered offender cannot live in neighborhoods near schools or playgrounds. Being charged with a sex crime can ruin a person’s reputation in a community, cause job termination, and destroy family relationships. The repercussions of a sex offense charge are endless. Even a totally innocent person suffers from the negative dispersions from the accusations.
A person who is the subject of a sex offense investigation needs an aggressive criminal defense attorney in California with experience in the defense of sex crimes. Any contact by the police or the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) needs to have the same highly competent representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney. A law enforcement agency may conduct an investigation without notifying the target of the investigation that he or she is the subject of the investigation. If the accusations are made by a minor, those accusations will likely be confidential and the person against whom the accusations are may not be aware of the factual allegations. It is crucial to hire an attorney as soon as possible.
Too often sex crime allegations are the result of personal animosity between individuals. In divorce cases with estranged parents bitterly fighting, the battle often turns to sex molestations allegations against one of the parents. In these cases, the DCFS is required by law to investigate sex offense allegations and report their conclusions to law enforcement. The investigation may be conducted by a zealous and biased investigator lasting weeks and months before the outcome is known. These allegations may be based on the word of young and impressionable children who are under the influence of the antagonistic parent. Having an experienced attorney on your side during this period can make all of the difference.
Allegations of child molestation or child abuse may be made by a routine medical exam or a medical provider who becomes suspicious of something found in the exam or something the child says. False accusations can result from misinterpretations. An experienced criminal attorney will be necessary to investigate and can present rebuttal evidence.
Allegations of a sex offense can originate from a spurned relationship with no evidence to support the allegations other than the word of the accuser. Because of the nature of this accusation, law enforcement will be obligated to investigate. If the police and prosecutor believe the accuser is believable, then charges may be filed. An experienced criminal defense attorney on your side can prevent a runaway investigation based on false and vindictive accusations. An experienced criminal defense attorney will aggressively prepare the defense by interviewing witnesses and gathering information early in the investigation. Presenting the state with convincing proof of innocence can result in a decision not to file charges.
