Seattle Criminal Defense Lawyer
Every Man's Worst Nightmare Come True
Child sex crimes present unimaginable danger to the accused. They are easy cases to bring and difficult cases to disprove and this where the expertise of a Seattle Criminal Defense Lawyer is invaluable. Punishments handed out for these crimes are second only to those given for murder. It's frightening, then, to observe that child molestation cases remain one of the most frequently mischarged crimes affecting innocent people. All it takes is the bare accusation of a child. No physical evidence is required. That is why it is so important to look into hiring the right criminal defense attorney in Seattle, WA. My clients are routinely astonished to learn that police often do no investigation other than to take the statement of the child, interrogate the defendant and then haul him off to jail. Nightmares begin here.
A prosecution for Child Molestation or Rape of a Child can arise out of an actual contact that was neither illegal nor sexual in any way. An innocent event can transform in the mind of a child into a life-changing accusation that can be distorted and reinforced by a hysterical parent. The scientific literature is full of case histories explaining why children make up these charges and come to believe them, even when they are untrue. The reasons are well documented and well understood, but this evidence must be effectively presented to a jury to be helpful.

We Fight Bad Laws and We Fight Bad Technology
Technology is a key component in the modern prosecution of sex crime cases. Knowledge of specific forensic technologies, like DNA typing, can have a profound effect on the outcome of your child molestation case. In addition to my years of experience in the courtroom, I'm also an experienced engineer with an intimate knowledge of the forensic technologies used to prosecute these cases. This background enables me to find creative new ways to attack the government's case. In my decades of practice, I've never met a single prosecutor who understood any of this technology, and that translates into a direct advantage for my clients.
