False rape accusations can ruin a person’s life and reputation. If you feel you’ve been falsely accused of rape, contact a Florida criminal defense attorney immediately.
Rape is a physical violation that does untold harm to the victim, and it should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Many measures have been taken in the past 20 years to change social attitudes about rape, promote awareness of “rape culture”, and remove blame from victims of this terrible crime.
Unfortunately, some individuals have taken advantage of these anti-rape attitudes to falsely report rape and sexual assault. False accusations of rape have occurred off and on throughout history, and although it’s good practice to believe someone who claims to have been raped, it’s never wise to ignore evidence that supports the innocence of the accused.
Considering the extent to which a rape accusation can damage the defendant’s family life, social life, and career, it is imperative that steps be taken to ensure that justice be served.
When someone is accused of rape, their Florida criminal defense attorney will evaluate the evidence and help expose anything that supports the innocence of their client. The attorney will work to clear their client’s name and enable him or her to move on with life.
