Reasons for Being Falsely Accused 

A false sexual assault allegation can leave you feeling confused and wondering why someone would do this. There are many reasons why someone may falsely accuse you of sexual assault. Some of the common reasons that someone falsely accuses someone else include:

  • Shame 
  • Revenge
  • Shielding an Affair

How a Defense Attorney Can Help

First and foremost, a defense attorney will thoroughly review all evidence presented by the prosecution. This includes witness statements, physical evidence, and any other documentation related to the case. They will also conduct their own investigation to gather any additional evidence that may support your innocence.

Next, a defense attorney will work with you to develop a strong defense strategy. This may include identifying any inconsistencies or contradictions in the prosecution’s case, as well as gathering character witnesses and obtaining expert testimony to support your version of events.

In addition, a defense attorney can negotiate on your behalf with the prosecution for a reduced charge or dismissal of the case. They can also challenge any unlawful evidence or procedure used against you, and advocate for your rights throughout the legal process.

Having a skilled defense attorney on your side can also provide emotional support during this difficult time. They are there to listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and guide you through each step of the legal proceedings.

In California, the law presumes that a person is innocent until proven guilty. A defense attorney’s job is to ensure that this presumption holds true and fight for your rights. So if you or someone you know is facing false allegations of sexual assault in California, don’t hesitate to seek the help of a trusted defense attorney who will work tirelessly to protect your innocence. Remember, having a strong defense can make all the difference in clearing your name and moving on with your life.  So, don’t wait – reach out to a defense attorney today for the best chance at defending against false allegations of sexual assault in California.

Potential Penalties

While the law considers everyone innocent until proven guilty, you can still find yourself convicted even if you were falsely accused. Without a skilled defense attorney on your side helping you present your case, you could be convicted and face the following penalties:

  • For a misdemeanor,
    • 6 months – 1 year in jail; and/or
    • Up to $2,000 in fines
  • For a felony,
    • 2-4 years in prison; and/or
    • Up to $10,000 in fines

In addition to jail or prison time and fines, many convictions force you to register as a sex offender. Sex offender registration can impact various aspects of your life. For example, you are limited in where you can live. Additionally, family and friends may be wary of being around you after a conviction and registration on the sex offender registry. Finally, it can be incredibly hard to find employment. A quick Google search of your name will bring up your conviction and sex offender registration, and potential employers will be less likely to hire you. This can lead to the inability to provide a steady income for yourself and your loved ones. 

Because of the far-reaching consequences, it is important that you hire a skilled defense attorney to represent your case, even if you have been falsely accused. Don’t wait until it’s too late, call our office today for a free consultation!
