Common Sex Crime Defenses in Cincinnati

If you are currently under investigation or have been arrested for any kind of alleged sexual offense, you may be able to provide one of several defenses in order to reduce or dismiss your criminal charges when you contact a Cincinnati sex crimes lawyer. Each specific case is unique based on the nature of the alleged crime, but common defenses include:

False Accusations

Some alleged offenders may be falsely accused of sex crimes by ex-spouses or former partners out of revenge or for other ulterior motives.

Lack of Evidence

Prosecutors may be unable to convict alleged offenders for sex crimes when they do not have any or enough physical evidence to prove that a sexual offense was committed.


Alleged victims may claim that sex crimes were committed when they originally consented to sexual conduct with the alleged offenders.

Mistaken Identity

In some cases of alleged sex offenses, the alleged victims may misidentify their alleged offenders and cause police to arrest innocent people.

Affirmative Defenses

Depending on the specific sex crime a person is accused of, the alleged offender may be able to raise an affirmative defense in which he or she admits to the sexual conduct in question but cannot be charged with a crime because a certain fact negates the criminal charges. Contacting a criminal defense lawyer will give you an early start to build a defense
