Sex-Crime Allegations, Including Allegations of Rape and Crimes Involving Minors

Sex-crime allegations, including allegations of rape and crimes involving minors, are some of the most serious charges a person can be faced with.   The important thing to know is such charges can be dealt with in a rational way and often cases can be stopped from advancing.  Attorney Brian Bregman has the knowledge and experience to deal with these cases at every stage.  There have been too many of these cases lately.  And while they often seem to be brought over nothing, such cases have to be taken seriously, and do require an attorney, owing to the large risks associated with them.  Attorney Brian Bregman likes to see as many of these cases disposed of as quickly as possible.

Often mere allegations of rape or sex with a minor can change a person’s life beyond repair.  Unfortunately, such crimes are also likely to involve over-aggressive and even political actions on part of the prosecutor.  For this reason, the importance of hiring an attorney as early as possible in the process cannot be overstated.  Both to defend the charges, and protect your name and reputation.  An overzealous prosecutor, or a prosecutor’s office with an agenda or political motive, will pay no price for making allegations that could follow you the rest of your life.  Attorney Brian Bregman has extensive experience defending against these types of charges, and has experience with prosecutors in different jurisdictions who pursue these types of charges, in the Washington DC and Maryland areas.

First and foremost, Attorney Brian Bregman brings knowledge of the types of specific sex-crime prosecutions being brought in the DC Metropolitan region.  This includes knowledge of any special initiatives or sex crimes programs ongoing in the various districts and local law-enforcement departments.  The first step is knowing the goals of the prosecuting agency.  The second step is knowing the best way these charges can be disposed of.  Once the goals of the prosecutor are known, it can be shown how your case does not actually fit with those goals, and hopefully the case can be disposed of.

When you are accused of a crime, you may feel alone.  But we can show you how your case may be part of a larger pattern of prosecutions.  We have seen this before, and we know how to deal with it.

Prosecutions for rape and similar crimes may be based solely on the testimony of a single accuser.  For this reason, the next step is to determine the source of the allegations, and why the accuser would make such statements.  Relevant areas of investigation  might be the criminal and psychological history of the accuser, any similar accusations in the past, and the general behavior and motives of the accuser.  Charges involving a single witness can be very uncertain and hard to prove, providing a clear opportunity for an experienced attorney to work in your favor.

But while these types of cases can often be brought to a favorable outcome, it is important to do so as quickly as possible, for a variety of reasons.  Quick work can save longer problems.  You will need an attorney with specific experience in sex-crime accusations, to pursue those strategies which are unique to a rape or other specific accusation right away.  Attorney Brian Bregman has experience handling the unique aspects of a single-witness accusation, as well as in other relevant areas  including:

1) Tough Cases – pleadings, and stopping a hard case as early as possible to protect your name,

2)  Improper Police Behavior – holding police to legal and Constitutional standards of conduct in pursuing a suspect,

3) Incorrect Charges and Legal Technicalities – often a defendant is charged with the wrong crime, or charged with something that is no way supported by the evidence – such cases can be disposed of quickly, and

4) Trial Defense – for cases that must go to trial, where no earlier resolution can be found, you will want an attorney who is experienced dealing with the types of witnesses and evidence that are necessary to prove a sex crime has taken place.  Attorney Brian Bregman has this experience, and has handled many uncertain cases with a favorable outcome.
