3 Things to Do If You’re Falsely Accused of Sexual Assault

Brian J Smith Oct. 4, 2013

Criminal charges of sexual assault are a serious matter that can have a huge impact on your life. These 3 simple strategies can greatly aid in your defense if you’re falsely accused of this allegation.

1.Create a time line

Documentation starting from the beginning of the alleged sexual assault to the events following the allegations can be a tremendously valuable tool for your defense. Anything that you have (receipts, time cards, tickets) could be valuable in proving your innocence.

2. Develop a witness list

Gather the names and contact information of anyone who may have witnessed contact with the individual purporting sexual assault. These contacts could provide vital information for your defense attorney.

3. Find the right lawyer for you

Ask to see their resume or a list of cases he/she has successfully tried that are similar to yours. A proven track record by your legal defense will give you peace of mind and provide you with the confidence that comes from utilizing experienced legal counsel.
