Waco Sexual Assault Attorneys
Sexual Assault Defense Strategies in Texas
With any type of sexual assault case, it is important to immediately involve an attorney who can challenge allegations — even if formal charges have not been filed. The earlier our Waco sexual assault lawyers can get involved, the sooner we can begin protecting your interests. We represent Baylor University students and clients who live and work in Waco, Lorena, and all of McLennan County.
When you work with our team, we will consider any potential defenses against your charges, such as:
- Mistaken identity
- Alibi (you were not where the victim claims you were)
- Insufficient physical evidence
- False allegations made for reasons of anger, jealousy, etc.
Whether you are charged with sexual assault or another sex crime, you probably know that the toughest part of your case is getting a fair trial. It's likely that you have already begun to feel judgment and scorn from people around you. The detectives, the arresting officer, and even the jailers probably all looked at you like you are guilty.
Not here. At Milam & Fanning, PLLC, we will fight vigorously to defend you and your name while protecting your privacy to the best of our ability. Your Waco sexual assault attorney will be the first part of the process where you are truly heard and respected. The presumption of innocence is not something that we reserve for the courtroom. In our eyes, it applies to you the moment you walk through our front door.
Keeping Your Situation Confidential
Another concept that we take seriously is attorney-client privilege. This means that anything you tell us is absolutely confidential. That is important to us. This is also why we don't say "hello" if we see you in public. We respect your privacy.
It is always true in any criminal defense case, but especially in sex crime cases: DO NOT talk about your case to anyone. Don't tweet about it. Don't post about it. You likely already know how facts can be twisted around to harm you — the same is true for every word you utter.
There are many different specific variations of a sexual assault charge. Likewise, the ranges of punishment can vary dramatically. Schedule a consultation with our Waco sexual assault defense attorneys, and we will walk you through exactly what you are facing and how we would approach your defense.
