There are several ways to win a sexual crime case:
- Establish Innocence
If the alleged perpetrator can be proven to have been somewhere else at the time of the alleged incident, then they could not have committed the crime they are being accused of.
- Dishonest Motives
Sometimes an accuser may have a reason to make up an incident that never happened, and it comes down to the skill of the defense attorney to dig out any reason the accuser may have made a false accusation.
- Tainted Evidence
When interviewing someone about a crime, it is not uncommon for “loaded questions” to be asked, and ultimately, false stories or even false memories are created. The manner in which questions are asked needs to be carefully considered and examined to ensure that only the real truth is presented, rather than some which has been artificially constructed with the intention of assigning guilt.
- Evidence Suppression
If improper procedure was used in obtaining evidence, then that evidence may be “suppressed” and cannot be used in attempting to convict you. The defense attorney needs to examine exactly how all the evidence was obtained.
