The Importance of Retaining Skilled Defense Counsel

A charge of sexual battery could involve several versions of events, or conflicting reports about what actually occurred. It is crucial that you are professionally represented by a high quality legal advocate who has exceptional trial abilities.

Sexual battery charges can be filed even in cases in which there is no physical evidence, and an accusation can be enough to have you arrested. False allegations are not uncommon. Lewd and lascivious battery charges can be filed if the victim is underage and can be considered a second-degree felony with a potential 15 year prison sentence.
