Experienced Defense against Charges of Child Sex Crimes
Being charged with a crime places you in an uphill battle to prove your innocence or limit the damage caused by a conviction. When your charges related to child sex crimes, your battle has become even more difficult, as the prosecution will often throw all of its resources into convicting you. If you have been charged with a child sex crime, including sexual assault of a minor or possession of child pornography, it is important to hire an attorney who is experienced fighting for clients in court.
At the law firm of Michael J. Griffith, P.A., our Navarre child sex crimes defense attorneys leverage more than 35 years of experience to offer the knowledgeable defense you need to protect your future, and your reputation from undue harm. Many cases involving children and sexual acts or photographs often go to trial, making our extensive courtroom experience a vital factor in your defense; we have successfully represented thousands of clients in court.
Exploring Every Aspect of Your Case
When facing child sex crime charges, it is important to explore every avenue of defense and investigate every aspect of the case against you. To help you mount the strongest possible defense, our staff will call in key experts, including:
- Private investigators
- Forensic specialists
- Computer technicians
With the help of these experts, we will go over your case with a fine toothed comb, looking for information that can be used during your defense or to apply pressure on the prosecution to drop your charges. Useful information can include:
- Contradictory evidence
- Conflicting witness statements
- Evidence obtained illegally or without a search warrant
- Deviations from proper police procedure or policy during their investigation
- Infringements upon your rights during or after your arrest
Any evidence obtained during our examination will then be used to mount the strongest case possible on your behalf. This approach, combined with our extensive courtroom experience, may prove to be the difference in whether you are convicted, or whether your charges are reduced or dismissed.
