Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers
If you’ve been charged with rape or sexual assault, you know the stigma which attaches to anyone accused of a sex crime. It may seem as if everyone has already decided you are guilty without having heard any of the evidence against you.
At the Law Office of James S. Arnold, we don’t judge anyone. We are committed to seeing that every criminal defendant has a fair trial and is represented by a skilled, experienced criminal defense lawyer.
Were you arrested for simply talking with someone in a chat room? Was someone you love accused of being a sexual predator following an online sting operation? Have you been arrested or charged with another sex-related criminal offense? To schedule a confidential consultation, contact our law firm or call (513) 984-8313.
The Use of Forensic Evidence in the Defense of Sex Crimes
More and more, sex crime cases involve DNA testing, hair analysis and other forensic evidence. As a result, the successful defense of rape, statutory rape and other sex crimes often depends upon testimony by expert witnesses to counter the prosecution’s scientific evidence.
In addition, when defendants are charged with online solicitation of a minor, downloading child pornography and other Internet sex crimes, complicated technological issues are often involved. A successful defense in these cases can depend upon forensic analysis of the defendant’s computer or hard drive.
Our law firm knows how to locate and work with the necessary expert witnesses. We will do everything we can to obtain the evidence and testimony needed to cast doubt on the prosecution’s case. Our criminal defense lawyers have the skills and knowledge to explain complicated forensic evidence to a judge or jury.
