Aggressive Defense Against Accusations Of Sexual Harassment
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 toward a person’s gender or sexual orientation. Oftentimes, these events occur in the workplace. Worse, they can involve superiors.
Allegations of sexual harassment can ultimately lead to criminal charges. Accusations of sexual harassment or sexual assault require a lawyer studied in the nuances of the law. This is not a do-it-yourself project. The law doesn’t have safety nets for those who choose to face their charges alone, even with the best intentions.
What To Do If You Are Accused Of Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
Do not try to explain your way out of the accusations. Do not re-enact the scenario. Do not admit to anything by telling your side of the story to an internal investigator or the police. Whether you have been accused or charged, do not talk to the police. Period. Do not talk to the alleged victim. The only person you should talk to is a criminal defense attorney to discuss the merits of a sexual harassment accusation or a sex crime charge.
If you or someone you know has been arrested for an alleged sex crime, accused of harassment or investigated for misconduct such as possession of child pornography, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. You need someone on your side to defend your rights and fight to protect you from a sex offender registration requirement. .
