Your Defense to False Accusations of Rape in Miami

crimdef1

Though rare at just two to ten percent, false accusations of rape do happen. When they do, the person falsely accused is still run through the ringer, and more often than not, convicted despite his innocence. At The Baez Law Firm, we are here to protect individuals that are falsely accused of any crime, including rape. If you or a loved one was falsely accused of rape in Miami, you face serious consequences. If convicted, and depending on the severity of the accusation, you face a minimum prison sentence of five years, probation, and a tarnished reputation and ruined future.

The penalties for a rape or sexual assault conviction do not go away after you serve your time. If convicted, you must register on the Sex Offender Registry everywhere you go – whether within Florida or without. This can make it difficult for you to get a job, find a place to live, or even to make friends within the community. Because of the serious consequences that a rape conviction can have on your life, if you have been falsely accused, contact an experienced Miami sex crimes lawyer to be your advocate today.

How to Fight False Accusations of Rape

Unfortunately, individuals who report false rape accusations are hardly ever given criminal sanctions, as law enforcement does not want to discourage the reporting of rape for fear of being unable to produce sound evidence. Furthermore, even if evidence clearly reveals that the defendant is innocent, prosecutors will still oftentimes push for a conviction, believing that their client simply had a different opinion about the sexual encounter and the way it played out. However, that does not mean that you are without options.

If falsely accused of rape in Miami, it is imperative that you seek the legal assistance of an experienced and aggressive sex crimes lawyer. The lawyers at The Baez Law Firm will investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and show where sufficient evidence is lacking, as well as any evidence that can prove that the accusation was made with malicious intent to harm your reputation and possibly subject you to criminal sanctions. Though proving your innocence may be difficult, with the right legal team on your side, it will not be impossible.
