Proven Attorney For Challenging Sex Crimes Charges

When you talk about draconian consequences, sexual offenses are up there at the top of the list. If you are convicted of a sex crime in Texas, not only will you be facing prison time, but once you are released, you will need to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.

That is why you need a strong, experienced criminal defense lawyer to advocate on your behalf. John M. Petruzzi is a former chief felony prosecutor now working as a criminal defense lawyer.

Raising Doubt About The Prosecution's Case

In any sex crimes accusation, Mr. Petruzzi looks for weaknesses in the prosecution's case. Depending on your situation, he will ask questions such as:

  • What aspects of the victim's story don't add up?
  • What is the nature of the relationship between the victim and the accused and did it change recently?
  • Is there a child custody dispute ongoing that may have influenced any so-called accusations?

Attorney Petruzzi points out the aspects of the prosecution's case that do not make sense. In order to be convicted, you must be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It is our job to raise doubt while upholding your legal rights.
