Arrested for Sexual Assault: Why You Need an Attorney

If you think you cannot be arrested for sexual assault because you’re innocent, think again. Even if you have a consensual sexual encounter, your partner may allege they were sexually assaulted. Since these allegations are taking seriously by police and prosecutors, chances are fairly high that you will be charged with the crime. To make sure your life is not destroyed by these allegations, here is why you need Attorney Mark Satawa to protect your legal rights during this complex process.

Lying about Sexual Assault
When allegations of sexual assault are made by a supposed victim, police and prosecutors are often eager to “close the case” – that is law enforcement talk for make an arrest, and gain a conviction. However, by working with Satawa Law, it may be revealed the alleged victim lied about the allegations for a variety of reasons, such as:

      –Attempting to extort money 
      –Revenge for perceived wrongdoing
      –Get attention or sympathy from others
      –Mental health issues
      –Alibi to cover up other behavior or shift responsibility 

No matter the reasons for the allegations, it will be important to have Southfield MI sexual abuse lawyers on your side who can quickly get to the bottom of things.

Serious Consequences
If you leave your fate in the hands of a public defender or attorney who has little if any experience defending sex cases, you will likely be convicted and face serious consequences. In most cases, this means an extended prison sentence, possibly life time parole and electronic monitoring upon release from prison, and registering as a sex offender. Rather than let this happen to you, turn to the Southfield MI sexual abuse lawyers at Satawa Law to prove your innocence.

While you may be scared wondering what may happen next, putting your trust in Attorney Mark Satawa can make even the most stressful event more bearable.
