False Sex Crime Allegations

Criminal Defense Lawyer in St Lucie, Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee

An allegation of a sex crime can be very traumatic. The consequences of a conviction are severe, and the label that society places upon someone convicted of a sex crime is permanent.

False allegations of a sex crime are all too common. Some typical motivations for this include:

  • Revenge

  • leverage during child custody fights

  • jealousy

  • improper coaching of a child

  • manipulation of a child by an angry parent

  • misinterpreted hug/touch

There are some important steps that need to be taken when defending an allegation of any sex crime. Depending upon individual facts and circumstances it could be helpful to secure a private and confidential polygraph examination. If the results turn out well, submitting the results to the authorities may help raise doubts about the alleged victim's version of the events.

Investigating the accuser is usually a focus of any sex crime allegation. Finding a way to discredit and cast reasonable doubts about the accusation are paramount to a successful defense strategy.
