Criminal Sexual Conduct Involving A Minor
If you are accused of a crime, you are supposed to be presumed innocent. Unfortunately, if the crime involves sexual conduct involving a minor, many people will view you as guilty. Police and prosecutors will be geared to convict you, even if there is no physical evidence that a crime was committed.

Doing Damage Control From The Start Of Your Case
Child molestation charges often begin with a friendly visit from a police officer investigating an accusation made against you. The investigators rarely state what evidence they have. They may even claim to have evidence that they do not. Their goal is to get you to talk about the charges. Anything you say can and will be used against you. Even innocent statements can be twisted around to give police the probable cause they need to make an embarrassing arrest.
Even if the charges are false, you need an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible. Police tend to believe accusers, even if there is no physical evidence that a crime was committed. Defense attorney Joe Friedberg has the skills to examine and attack any evidence that police have. He will also investigate the motives of the person making the accusation.
Children can be manipulated into making statements that are untrue. It is dangerous to assume that the criminal justice system will uncover the truth. Police often look for evidence that supports their case and ignore any evidence that supports your case. Attorney Joe Friedberg will look out for your best interests.
