Orlando Rape Attorney
Are you accused of rape?
The penalties for rape are extremely heavy in our state, and under Florida Statute Sections 794.005-794.09, sexual battery committed on an individual under the age of 12 by an adult that is 18 years or older will be filed as a capital felony, and can be punished by the death penalty, or result in life in prison in a conviction. For an alleged victim that is over the age of 12, the charges are usually filed as a second degree felony, with a potential of 15 years in state prison. At Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, we are very familiar with all aspects of rape charges, as our lead attorney is a former prosecutor that has extensive trial experience on both sides and is a and former Miami Dade Cyber Crime Prosecutor. Our firm is 100% committed to litigation, and take pride in our many favorable case results in difficult sex crime cases, including defending clients facing rape charges. We know how to fight in court.
Rape Lawyer in Orlando
If you are under investigation or have already been arrested and charged with sexual assault, you need to act quickly and contact an Orlando sex crime lawyer from our firm. There are often extremely viable opportunities for the defense that must be identified as early in the game as possible. If we can get involved prior to formal charges being filed, there could be factors that could allow us to get the charges dismissed or reduced, based upon the actual evidence in the case.
We provide the highest level of legal service to those facing charges of rape, and we are concerned about protecting your rights and freedoms. There are many cases in which criminal accusations of rape are false or exaggerated, including situations in which an encounter was consensual and later the alleged victim claims that the sexual act was forced upon them. Being innocent is never enough; the criminal justice system is a very tough place to be caught, and if you have been arrested and charged with rape, it indicates that the prosecutor believes there is enough evidence to convict you. We move into action immediately for the defense of your case, and will pursue every possible avenue that could be beneficial to your case, including investigating the alleged victim, all lab procedures, police procedure, and any other factor that could have weaknesses that can be exploited for your defense.
We are available to our clients and potential clients 24/7. We do not have an answering service, and we take our calls. We know that legal problems don't always occur during working hours, and make ourselves available at all times so that the criminally charged or their families can contact us and get the help they need.
