Defense After False Allegations Of Domestic Violence Or Sex Crimes

Domestic violence is a prime example of a “he said, she said” situation leading to police involvement, in many cases. The same is true of sex crime allegations. Granted, there are glaring exceptions, such as certain high-profile family violence and sexual assault cases that end up on the front pages of newspapers.

Falsely Accused Of Family Violence?

For most people, however, domestic violence incidents amount to relationship upsets and anger control problems. Once the police are involved in a domestic matter, it is no longer private. An arrest and jail time for someone is likely. What if you were falsely accused of domestic violence? You may totally deny having hurt your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend during an argument. You may deny having made criminal threats. Even if your partner has recanted the accusations, your need for a strong defense remains true.

Contact The Law Office of Jeffrey Jones in Bartlett if you have been falsely accused of violence or threats against your domestic partner or family member.

Did He Or She Claim You Committed A Sex Crime?

False accusations of sex crimes sometimes involve consensual sexual relations when either partner regrets those acts. Some may result from genuine misunderstandings. Other falsified allegations may come from questionable motives related to a divorce or child custody dispute.

Whatever circumstances led to false accusations against you, contact an attorney right away. In the words of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), a false report of sexual assault is one for which “the evidence establishes that no crime was committed or attempted.” (IACP National Law Enforcement Policy Center, 2005, pp. 12-13; cited in a report from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, Enola, Pennsylvania).

A lawyer on your side can help demonstrate that you did not commit or attempt a crime in a situation that led to false accusations against you of rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse or indecent exposure.
