Possible Defenses against Charges of Capital Sexual Battery

A seasoned Florida sexual battery attorney can thoroughly investigate all angles of your case and fight to have your charges reduced or even dismissed.

In some cases, the following may be used in your defense:

  • Police misconduct
  • Violation of your constitutional rights
  • Language barriers
  • False testimony

Capital sexual battery is often proven solely on the testimony of the victim. In many cases, children can be coerced into falsely testifying by a vindictive parent or guardian. Additionally, children often do not remember incidents exactly the way they occurred and details may be unclear, even falsified under a family member or the prosecution's direction.
