It’s common for innocent people to think that they don’t need representation. After all, if they didn’t do anything wrong, they won’t be found guilty. Unfortunately, that is true only in an ideal world. Anyone, no matter how innocent, who has been charged with a sex crime needs a reputable Indiana sex offense attorney.
Most sexual crimes are considered felonies in the state of Indiana, which means that if you are convicted, there’s a very strong possibility of being sentenced to time in prison. You need a qualified attorney who can vigorously defend you against these charges, or you may very likely have to face life-changing penalties.
Bear in mind that in many cases, the most persuasive evidence against you is the victim’s statement. This fact can work in your favor, but only with an experienced trial attorney who understands how to advocate for reasonable doubt.
You see, while there may not be any physical evidence to convict you, there is also no physical evidence to exonerate you. Your attorney, however, will understand the laws and the necessary strategies to prepare a strong defense on your behalf.
Sex crime convictions come with life-long consequences. Don’t roll the dice with your future—call Leeman Law today.
