Rape crimes always come with a social stigma that never fades away more than any other type of crimes. The punishment for a sex crime felony violation harsher than a punishment for murder. Even if you are not sentenced to a life imprisonment, you will be sentenced to life for registering a sexual offender every year as it is stated in the Penal Code section 290 as well as being excommunicated from the society you live.
Most criminal defense lawyers, unfortunately, do not have the necessary knowledge and experience to defend and protect their clients in such types of cases and allegations. The best way such attorneys and lawyers can gain enough experience in dealing with such criminal cases is by working at the Sex Crimes Unit in the District Lawyer’s Office as well as investing in the time so as to have a clear understanding of what happens in the investigation courses, the important parts to note as a lawyer, how to halt the process of investigation, how where the weakness of the case is, how to convince the jury how not to get guilty, and how to get a favorable or dismissal plea.
A knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorney dealing with crimes associated with sex crimes is always accompanied by a group of defense lawyers and team members that does not fail to include the forensic medical experts, a private investigator, polygraphist and psychologists who are always ready to work with you to stop the government as well as fight any type of accusation concerning rape.
