DEFENSE STRATEGIES IN SEX CRIMES CASES
As a former Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney, our
Virginia Beach sex crimes attorney is well-versed on how prosecutors prepare sex crimes cases, and on the challenges and problems that a case might involve. For example, some people bring false charges of sexual assault to cover up consensual sex if it would be damaging to the person’s family. False charges can also be brought to seek revenge or to punish someone for a perceived wrong.
