Cleveland Sex Crimes Lawyer
The accusation of sex crimes brings more than the threat of prison. That can be scary enough for defendants, but these types of allegations often result in defendants suffering premature judgment from their communities, neighbors, and perhaps even their own families. They need an attorney who will have their back and who knows how to win at trial. Brockler Law is a place where they can find just that kind of attorney.
The Penalties for Sex Crimes in Ohio
Sex crimes, broadly defined, cover rape and sexual battery. Rape is when intercourse is alleged to have occurred without consent or through the use of force and coercion. Sexual battery is when the defendant is alleged to have taken unfair advantage of the victim in some way.

Sex Crimes Defense Strategies
The legal defense we employ will depend on the specific circumstances of each case, but there are some general strategies that have broad application.
Did the alleged sex act even occur? Prosecutors can produce DNA, which can establish that the act did indeed happen. But what if they are unable to do that? Is there anything else that would place the defendant at the scene of the alleged crime? We make the D.A.’s office prove all that and more.
Even if it’s proven that the act did occur, was it actually consensual? These cases often involve putting one person’s word against the other. It’s important to emphasize that it’s the prosecuting attorney who must produce evidence that shows the act was coerced. Moreover, that evidence must be so compelling as to persuade twelve jurors that no other explanation other than the defendant’s guilt is even reasonable.
All of this is a high legal bar for prosecutors to meet. Our legal defense strategies will challenge them in every way we know why.
