Joel Bacher is an Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer That Will Challenge the Legality of Your Sexual Harassment Charge

If you are here reading this today, chances are it's because you or someone you know may need legal advice on a sexual harassment charge. There may be confusion, amazement, anger or disbelief in the air around you. It happens often; I've seen quite a range of emotions with those who've retained me for counsel. But let me remind you that you have rights, and I will defend those rights of yours aggressively, to the full extent of the law should you decide to retain me to defend you. For starters, there's always a chance we can get a sexual harassment charge downgraded or dismissed with a couple of phone calls. Call me right now; there's no charge for the consultation. If I don't pick up, I will be back to you shortly. It's quite possible I can give you advice right away on the harassment charge you are facing.

Because sexual harassment covers a very broad spectrum of sexual misconduct, it can be obscured by cultural or social standards of the accused and/or the accuser. What may have been meant as a compliment to one could be construed as an unwanted sexual advance to another. Sometimes this is in the form of an unwanted caress, a crude joke, or an offensive innuendo towards a person's gender or sexual orientation. Oftentimes these events occur in the workplace. Worse, they can involve superiors. A sexual harassment charge needs a lawyer studied in the nuances of the law. This is not a do-it-yourself project during which you pretend the law has a safety net to break the fall of a very well meaning, but misunderstood, individual.


Do not try to explain your way out of the charge. Do not re-enact the scenario. Do not admit to anything by telling your side of the story to police. If you are charged, or even about to be charged, do not talk to the police. Period. Do not talk to the victim. The only person you should talk to is a criminal defense attorney to discuss the merits of a sexual harassment charge. The police, when questioning you, despite what your mother may have told you, are not your friends. Although they appear friendly, perhaps comradely, even sympathetic, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you. Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity and continue to remain silent in the meantime.


If you or someone you know has been arrested for a sex crime such as harassment or misconduct, I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel. The State's prosecutor's office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Not only is this hard to satisfy in an harassment case, but if the Court has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the charge, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights. I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that involved sexual misconduct. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of sex crimes. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate if not dismiss a sexual harassment charge is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.
