Legal Guidance For The Falsely Accused
When you are falsely accused of a sex crime, your options to prevent a conviction can seem limited. However, it is possible to successfully fight back against false or fabricated allegations.
Attorney Phillip Stackhouse represents service members and civilian government contractors based in California, across the United States and in international bases. Our attorney understands the challenges of confronting a false accusation in a criminal case. He has worked for nearly four decades with criminal matters, first as a Marine JAG officer and then as military defense attorney. Additionally, he also works as a civilian defense attorney for nonservice members.
Circumstances In Which False Allegations Occur
False allegations can stem from a wide array of circumstances, including:
- Fabrication. This could include when the accuser has an ulterior motive to fabricate the incident, including infidelity, the prospect of gaining money or attention and more.
- A mistake. This often involves intoxication, when excessive alcohol consumption leads to sexual actions that would not have occurred under normal circumstances.
- Mistaken identity. This could include when an attacker is mistakenly identified, whether due to the aftermath of violence, intoxication or more.
Whatever led to the false allegation, it is crucial to immediately consult with an attorney. While you may strongly deny the allegations, the accuser may be equally “certain” with their accusation. You need an experienced attorney to fight for your rights.
