Defenses Against Sex Crime Charges Shouldn't Be Rushed
April 19, 2019
Some criminal charges seem much worse than others simply because of the person who is considered the victim in it. One of these is when there is a sex crime charge pending against someone. These charges usually involve very personal facts about the victim, so they are often delicate matters. Trying to present a defense in these cases is a complex undertaking.
One thing that you don't want to do is to seem like you are attacking the victim in court. This makes it very challenging to be able to call the person's past intimate activities in question. For example, if you are accused of rape, but the person was a known personal escort, it might be hard to bring up that point without making it seem like you are bashing the victim.
