This blog is dedicated to providing information, updates, and strategy regarding the defense of sex crimes in the state of Georgia. The blog is authored by myself, Ryan Brown, of J. Ryan Brown Law, LLC. My firm webpage is www.jryanbrownlaw.com
I have offices in Newnan, Georgia and Macon, Georgia. These are strategically located on Georgia’s major interstates so that I may provide representation to people accused of sex crimes throughout the State.
My services include criminal defense representation for an array of sex crimes, including: Child Molestation, Aggravated Child Molestation, Rape, Aggravated Assault with the Intent to Rape, Incest, Sodomy, Aggravated Sodomy, Statutory Rape, Child Pornography, Sexual Battery, and even pimping.
Sex crimes are are typically light on physical evidence and heavy on he-said-she-said. The facts of these cases vary greatly, but alleged crimes against minors are oftentimes family-on-family allegations and rape allegations from college campuses are on the rise.
In our country we are always told “innocent until proven guilty.” Technically, that is true. The sad reality, however, is that the social stigma surrounding sex crimes typically erodes that presumption of evidence. In these cases your lawyer must work hard to defend that presumption, defend you, and help prove your case to prosecutors, and ultimately a jury.
Criminal cases in Georgia are governed by the Rules of Evidence and the Rules of Criminal Procedure. There are special rules throughout that apply specifically to sex crimes. Yet another reason why it is so important to have an attorney.
Many of these (not all) crimes carry a minimum of twenty-five years in prison and up to life in prison. Semantics. Twenty-five years is a life time. When charged with a sex crime it is critical that you secure an attorney at the earliest stage possible. In sex cases, there may time-sensitive evidence that must be secured before it disappears.
