Choosing an assault attorney that has experience with the Duval county justice system can make a major deference in getting your case dismissed or charges reduced. If you are convicted of a sexual assault charge, you will be registered as a sex offender, could suffer loss of your job, reputation and freedom.
One of the most serious crimes under Penal Code sec. 22.011 is an allegation of sexual assault or rape. Sexual assault charges are very serious felony crimes that can be avoided altogether if the claims are false, or the evidence or other factors involved in the case would prevent a conviction. In many cases the accused individual can be prosecuted based on the testimony of the alleged victim without supporting physical evidence. The law also allows the parole board leeway in classifying parolees as sexual offenders even in some cases those who have never been convicted of a sex crime.
