Have you been charged with sexual assault or sexual battery? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
If you have been accused of a sex crime such as sexual assault or sexual battery, you need to be extra proactive when it comes to your defense.
First of all, sex crimes are very polarizing. Many people—including your friends, coworkers, and even some family members—may assume you are guilty as soon as they hear you have been accused. Once you are tried in the court of public opinion, you will find it difficult to repair the damage to your reputation, which can affect you both personally and professionally.
Secondly, if you are convicted of a sex crime, you will face harsh penalties, including sex offender registration. A misdemeanor conviction for sexual battery/sexual assault requires 10 years of registration, while a felony conviction will make you a registered offender for life.
It is essential to get a skilled and experienced sex crimes defense attorney working on your case ASAP. At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates, we will stand up for your rights. When it feels like everyone else has abandoned you, we will be with you every step of the way, fighting aggressively to resolve your case as quickly and advantageously as possible.
Possible Sexual Assault and Sexual Battery Defense Strategies
The California Penal Code defines sexual battery or sexual assault as touching someone intimately without their permission, for the purposes of sexual gratification, arousal, or abuse. As you can see, there are numerous elements of the crime for the prosecution to prove. As your criminal defense attorney, there are a variety of strategies we can use to prevent them from doing so. For example, we may be able to present evidence showing that the contact was consensual or accidental. We will also consider the possibility that you have been falsely accused, or that there is insufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
We will use our familiarity with local DAs and prosecutors to intervene as early as possible in your case, arguing for a dismissal of charges or a favorable plea deal as the evidence may dictate. Either way, you will secure a faster resolution to your case than going to trial. If going to trial is the best option in your case, we will tell you honestly and then provide superior quality courtroom representation.
