Dos and Don'ts After Being Charged With a Sex Crime

If you are being charged with rape or a similar sex crime, here are some practical tips to consider helping maximize the effectiveness of your defense:

  • Do hire legal counsel right away.
  • Do collect any physical evidence related to the event in question, such as clothing and photographs.
  • Do collect any relevant documentation such as emails, voicemails, letters, text messages, or GPS data, especially if this evidence proves you were not at the location where the crime occurred.
  • Do create a list of possible witnesses and their contact information.

Here are some things to avoid after an accusation:

  • Don't attempt to contact the victim in any way.
  • Don't talk to police or investigators without your attorney present.
  • Don't agree to any non-mandatory testing, even if you think it will prove your innocence.
  • Don't hand over any evidence to law enforcement without consulting your lawyer.
  • Don't allow access to your home, office or vehicle without first getting legal representation.
