Consent. I didn’t do it. Alibi.
Aggressively defending criminal sexual conduct charges is necessary in protecting your freedom, your life and your reputation. One should only hire an experienced criminal defense trial lawyer to defend against the most serious allegations of criminal sexual misconduct. The attorney must have a proven track record of dismissals and not-guilty jury trial verdicts. Saving money and having your lawyer charge you a cheaper legal fee to “gain the experience” in criminal sexual conduct cases is not a wise decision.
It’s best to act quickly if you learn you are being investigated for a sex crime. Consent might be an important defense of a sex crime defense. More common is the “I didn’t do it” and “I don’t know why she is making up these allegations.” Attorney Ryan Garry has won many Minnesota Criminal Sexual Conduct cases using these defenses.
A minor who is under 16 years of age is not able to give consent to any type of sexual activity.
In Minnesota, consent does not have to be corroborated by the alleged victim. There mere allegation is enough to obtain a conviction. However, a strong investigation and relentless preparation into the victim’s motivations, prior life experiences, and prior false allegations is crucial in developing a legal defense.
Alibi might be another defense. The Minneapolis sex crimes attorney must review the alibi defense with the client. Photographs, pay stubs, flight information, and other evidence can be used to confirm the alibi.
Bottom line. Next to murder there is no more of a serious allegation one can face then criminal sexual misconduct. One thing is for certain. The MN criminal sexual conduct lawyer you hire makes a difference.
