The importance of involving a criminal defense attorney as early on in any case cannot be understated, particularly for college students and young adults.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
Experienced North Carolina sex crimes defense attorney Patrick Roberts of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, recently helped a local college student avoid rape charges. The student wisely secured legal representation early enough in the investigation and no charges were ever filed against him.
The student had been accused of sexually assaulting a female after a college party. He would have faced up to 30 years in prison if convicted of what could have been a charge of 1st degree forcible rape. He would also have faced a term of 30 years of being forced to register as a sex offender. But, when all the facts were on the table, no charges were filed.
Patrick Roberts put his experience in sex crimes defense to work for the university student. The accused student submitted to a polygraph examination regarding his version of the events that led to the accusation of sexual assault. Roberts fully prepared the student for his meetings with both law enforcement and with university officials.
After collecting the available evidence in the case, including the accused’s version of events and the results of the polygraph examination, the university declined to pursue the alleged sexual assault case any further. The matter was not referred to law enforcement. No charges were ever filed.
The importance of involving a criminal defense attorney as early on in any case cannot be understated, particularly for college students and young adults. There is simply too much on the line this early in life to trust your future, your reputation and your freedom, to anyone other than an attorney or law firm with a history of successful results in difficult cases.
