CAMPUS RAPE CRIMES: DEFENSE ATTORNEY IN TUCSON, ARIZONA
It happens in every college campus throughout Arizona: Young men and women start out their nights with the simple intention of having fun. They head out to the local bar, tailgate, bonfire, house party, or whatever that night’s social event may be — primed and ready to socialize, relax, and maybe even get lucky. Little do they realize how soon their good time can turn into a criminal rape charge.
Consider this all-too-common scenario:
You’re at a frat party, and you’ve really hit it off with a cute girl from your class.
After a couple hours of flirting, you leave the party to have sex.
Around 3:00 a.m., she gets a text from her boyfriend and guiltily heads home.
A few weeks later, you’re facing formal rape charges.
As a criminal defense attorney who has been defending campus rape charges for more than 40 years, I can tell you that this is one of the most common scenarios that can land a good kid in big trouble with the law. Fortunately, you have a serious local advocate on your side, ready to defend your name and fight to clear your record.
Your Best Defense against Campus Rape Charges
Following a rape accusation, your first move absolutely must be finding a good attorney. Getting an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer on your side now means drastically improving your chances of reducing your charges or getting an acquittal.
My law office is located directly across the street from the University of Arizona. If you are a student there (or if that’s where your alleged criminal activity took place), that means your friendly neighborhood criminal defense attorney is just a stone’s throw away. If you’ve been charged with rape, sexual assault, or another sex crime, call me immediately to set up a free consultation.
Why Would Someone Lie about Being Raped?
In recent years, countless studies have estimated that over 90% of legitimate college rape victims never report their attackers. On the flip side, those who are quick to accuse a fellow university student of rape often lie to save themselves from judgment and other repercussions.
Accusers Underestimate Arizona Rape Penalties
In fairness to the accusers, they generally don’t realize how serious the penalties will be in the event that their alleged attacker is found guilty of rape. As the accused, however, it’s extremely important that you understand the severity of your situation: If you are convicted of rape in Arizona, you will face a 5.5-year minimum prison sentence with no chance of early release.
I don’t say this to make your situation feel even scarier than it already is. Rather, I want to make sure you get the legal defense you need as soon as possible. My job for more than 40 years has been to fight for acquittals on behalf of those falsely accused of sex crimes. Frankly, I’m extremely good at my job and am well-known throughout Arizona for having an extremely high acquittal rate. In other words, working with me dramatically increases your chances of clearing your name.
