Sexual Assault

Sex Crime Attorney Serving San Diego, CA

Crimes involving sexual assault are taken very seriously in California. They are harshly prosecuted and penalized, with mandatory minimum sentences required as of January 1, 2017. With very few exceptions, a person convicted of sexual assault must serve time in jail or prison. Sexual assault also requires lifetime registration as a sex offender, and for offenses allegedly committed on or after January 1, 2017, there is no statute of limitations for sexual assault. This means an alleged victim could come forward any time in the future, even years or decades after the incident occurred.

Defenses to Sexual Assault Accusations

With cases involving sexual assault, it can come down to a “he-said, she-said” situation. Evidence may be limited, and there may be no witnesses, save the defendant and the alleged victim. It is important for your attorney to use every advantage possible to challenge the charges you are facing, including such defenses as:

  • The accusations are entirely false.
  • The alleged victim had reason to make false allegations, out of anger, revenge, or jealousy.
  • It is a case of mistaken identity.
  • The alleged victim actually consented to the act or acts.
  • There is insufficient evidence to support sexual assault charges.
