An allegation or accusation of Rape is one of the most difficult things a person can experience. It is for this reason that you must hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who has defended Rape cases. It takes a unique skill set to understand these types of charges and to be willing to cross-examine your accuser who may be a former partner or a child.
