Aggressive Defense Against Sexual Assault and Rape Charges
Raleigh, North Carolina, Sexual Assault Defense Lawyer
Under North Carolina and federal law, sexual assault is a felony offense that can include a prison sentence of up to 20 years and registration on the state and federal sex offender registries. The unfortunate thing about sexual assault charges is that they are generally referred to as "rape" charges, carrying the emotional baggage of everything that term implies. The fact is, if you have been charged with sexual assault, you are often already considered guilty before any of the facts are investigated and before you step into a courtroom. In these difficult times, an experienced, skilled and aggressive attorney is an invaluable asset.
