Was The Alleged Minor Accuser Telling The Truth?
Cases involving sexual crimes against a minor can be complicated and emotional. If you have been charged with a sex crime against a child or young teenager, it is important to have a lawyer by your side who will defend your rights. My defense firm, the Law Office of James M. Brun, LLC, in Overland Park is committed to providing our clients with the best defense possible.
How A Lawyer Can Help
A lawyer’s job in these cases is straightforward: defending their client to the best of their ability. It is very important to have a strong and aggressive lawyer by your side in these cases. When I take your case, I will do the necessary research, including closely scrutinizing the accuser’s credibility. I will examine whether the person had a reason to lie or exaggerate about what happened. I will comb over every part of their story and look for inconsistencies.
We know prosecutors and juries can be harsh in sex crime cases, especially when they involve minors. I will do everything in my power to defend you professionally, protect your rights and do what is necessary to help you secure the best possible outcome.
Just A Teenage ‘Love Story?’ — No ‘Romeo And Juliet’ Laws In Kansas!
Examining the age of the accuser and details of the accusation will be very important in Kansas when both parties are teenagers. Allegedly consensual sexual contact with someone aged 14-16 is not covered under any “Romeo and Juliet” laws in Kansas, as in some other states. Some counties in Kansas may still decline to press charges in these cases if the defendant is younger than 19; however, in Johnson County and other counties, you can expect a prosecutor to take these cases to court.
Note: Teenagers under the age of 16 when accused of these crimes will not get off the hook just because they are young. Regardless of the age of the accused, a strong defense is critical. At this law firm, we are committed to defending our clients’ rights and doing everything we can to secure a favorable outcome.
