All too often, claims of sexual assault are completely unfounded. Remorse after a consensual sexual encounter may prompt someone to allege a sexual assault, or one parent may accuse the other of something out of context with a claim of abuse in the midst of a child custody dispute. False sexual accusations are as devastating on the accused as sexual abuse is for the victim. People charged with sexual offenses often face hostile prosecutors, harsh public opinion, and a bitter social stigma. Most people are only too quick to assume the worst about those accused of sex offenses. Carl has handled, or has been a member of in the defense of, many accused who were simply "Not Guilty" of the charges alleged. He is a firm believer that those facing such charges deserve the best possible defense and representation.

Usually those who find themselves accused of a sexual offense often want to keep their situation as private as possible. Even before the charge is filed, the mere accusation of being involved in a sexual offense may be very embarrassing. Carl understands this and will help try and guide you and your family through the process. He will scrutinize statements from the accuser and all witnesses, if they are relevant to the case.
A person accused of a sexual offense needs an aggressive and zelous advocate to try and protect their rights and their future. Once convicted, a sex offender is marked and labeled for life. In this regard, a conviction for a sex offense is more serious than other kinds of criminal convictions. Many times, long prison sentences or lengthy probationary periods result from the charge. After prison and during the probationary period, the defendant's name, address and photograph can be publicized by the police and posted on the Internet. A person convicted of a sexual offense will likely be limited in the kinds of jobs they can hold and where they can live.
Carl will do everything in his power to help avoid the stigma of having to register as a sex offender, and will work diligently to try and keep you out of jail. The first concern is to try mount the best defense to try and help you win your case.
