If Ever You Needed the Help of an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney, It Is Now

When someone is arrested, there are inevitably those who will immediately think that the person is guilty, but almost always, there is also a group that will begin to talk about “innocent until proven guilty,” or “not casting stones,” or looking for the mitigating circumstances that would help to explain why the person couldn’t be so bad as the charges make it seem. However, in the case of someone who is charged with the predatory criminal sexual assault of a child in Chicago, there is rarely that supportive voice because such an offense is viewed by the general public as one of the most heinous transgressions that could possibly be committed. If you are facing such a charge, it is possible that even those closest to you will find it difficult to offer you any support. Your best option is to consult with a defense attorney who has successfully defended child sexual assault cases in the past.

 

Despite the fact that public opinion may be turned against you, the legal system still affirms that even someone who has been accused of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child is innocent until proven otherwise and has the right to a defense attorney who can provide sound legal counsel. Even though you may have become a social pariah because of the charges against you, your defense attorney knows and understands that you may very well have been falsely accused and will do everything possible to provide you with the kind of defense that justice demands.
