Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer in Phoenix, AZ
Perhaps no other crime you can be charged with carries the stigma associated with a sex crime accusation, whether rape, indecency with a minor, sexual assault, or prostitution. Sex crime cases can also be emotionally charged and complex, as there are two sides to every story.
As a criminal defense lawyer, Belén understands the complex nature surrounding the preparation and defense of a sex crime charge and the sensitive nature of the allogation. She also understands the severity of the punishment her clients may face, if convicted. Belén Olmedo Guerra has the courtroom experience and skill required to defend her clients.
Belén Olmedo Guerra is known for providing aggressive defense representation for her clients throughout Phoenix. She has successfully handled a number of high-profile cases.
Belén Olmedo Guerra Fights for Your Rights
With every case she takes, she closely scrutinizes every piece of evidence the prosecution intends to use against her clients. Armed with a thorough understanding of each case, she drives the case towards the best possible outcome, whether that is convincing the state of Arizona to dismiss or reduce the charges against her clients or crafting a successful defense at trial.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case several defenses may be available. This includes:
- Offering proof that someone else committed the crime
- False accusations
- False witness testimony
- Mistaken identity
- Inappropriate misleading witness interviews
- Faulty forensic testing conclusion
- Witness, prosecution, or police bias
Furthermore, there may be mitigating circumstances such that the facts only support a lesser charge. Belén has the skill required to bring these defenses to life in the courtroom, whether this be through withering cross examination of a Government witness or a compelling closing arguments demonstrating the deficiencies in the State’s proof.
Sex crime cases often come down to whose version of events is more believable. In most cases, the opportunity is available to convince prosecutors that justice can be served by a lesser charge or sentence. When the state’s charges don’t hold up, the charges may be dismissed.
In other cases, it may be in the client’s best interest to accept a plea deal, and Belén Olmedo Guerra will make sure that her client is well aware of the consequences of accepting the deal and will advise either for or against it.
Common Sex Crime Charges
A criminal sexual act normally involves non consensual or forced physical intimacy with another person. It is also a crime to engage in sexual activity with someone who cannot consent, such as a child or person who lacks mental capacity, including someone who is intoxicated.
Belén Law Firm has extensive knowledge but is not limited to the following range of charges:
- Date Rape
- Statutory Rape
- Sexual Assault
- Indecency with a Minor
- Child Pornography
- Child Exploitation
- Solicitation of a Minor
- Solicitation for Prostitution
Sex crime cases are offent difficult becuase the accusor and alleged perpetrator are often the only ones who actually know what happened. Additionally, there are some who use these types of allegations as weapons. They can be used to create leverage in child custody cases and sometimes even used as a method of retaliation. Once these allegations have been made, it can be impossible for the accused to fully recover his or her reputation.
Regardless of the accusations against you, you always have the right to be presumed innocent until the state of Arizona proves its charges.
