We Understand The Serious Nature Of Sexual Assault Charges
Sexual assault is polarizing. Sometimes, it involves individuals unknown to one another. Sometimes spouses, sometimes friends. Signals cross, and accusations fly. The accused marked for life, guilty or not.
A sexual assault charge is serious beyond words. The fact is, the accused has rights. And at The Law Offices of Joel M. Bacher, protecting those rights with every fiber of our being is what we do, and have done, successfully for residents charged in New York and New Jersey for over 40 years.
What To Do If You Are Arrested For Sexual Assault, Battery Or Rape
Do not try to mitigate the charge. 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 who can review your rape or sexual assault charge.
No matter how reasonable the police may seem, as soon as they begin questioning you they are building a case that puts your freedom at risk. That is their job. Request to speak to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can, be firm in that request and then remain silent.
What To Look For In A Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
If you or someone you know has been arrested for a violent sex crime, 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 a sexual assault case, but if the presiding judge has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the crime, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed.
The Law Offices of Joel M. Bacher is here to defend your rights. For over 40 years, we have successfully defended numerous charges that involved sexual assault. We find opportunities to have charges downgraded, and in many cases have had cases dismissed altogether. We approach every case as if it is going to trial — with strong preparation. Attorney Joel Bacher is certified for civil trials by the New Jersey Supreme Court and is fully licensed to practice law in New York, New Jersey and all federal courts.
