One of the most serious crimes a person can ever be charged with is a Sex Crime. The accusation alone is enough to ruin someone's life. In Arkansas, a conviction for a sex crime will mean you must register as a sex offender – something that most of us simply couldn't imagine.
These types of cases are highly specialized, and while any licensed attorney can represent a sex crime defendant, that doesn't mean they should. You need an attorney with experience on both sides of these cases. Rhoads & Armstrong has the experience in the area of sex crimes against children and has taken several of these cases to trial with tremendous success. Representation in a sex crime case can be very costly. Don't risk your limited resources – or your future – with an inexperienced attorney.
Sex crimes include:
Investigations into these allegations are tricky. Detectives and other investigators will often use recorded phone calls or video chats, text message or online chat logs, written or recorded victim or eyewitness statements, and medical or DNA evidence to build their cases. There is a great deal of evidence to gather in a sex crime investigation – so much, in fact, that in almost every case, something is missed. You need a lawyer that is willing to speak to every witness, turn over every rock, and who knows exactly where to look for that missing evidence – which can often help to prove innocence (or, at least, to create a reasonable doubt as to guilt).
