Although any person is innocent until proven guilty, it often doesn’t apply to individuals who are wrongly accused of sex crimes. False allegations can ruin someone’s career, taint their personal life, and dismantle the family unit.
If you’re accused of a sex crime in Ohio that you didn’t commit, our Dayton criminal defense lawyer at L. Patrick Mulligan & Associates can offer strong legal protection against the prosecution, the media, and those in the community who believe you are guilty. We are ready to aggressively defend you and do what it takes to avoid conviction.
Being falsely accused of a sex crime may be hard to believe; however, these allegations can occur for various reasons. For example, an accuser may attempt to seek revenge against the accused due to a prior dispute. Sometimes an accuser may regret having consensual intercourse and then make up a fake story to hide their shame. On other occasions, an accuser may incorrectly identify the perpetrator.

We can help you assert your rights when being interviewed by police or the prosecution, thoroughly document your case, and find potential witnesses that may benefit your defense.
