When a charge of sexual assault is made, police respond quickly and an investigation is commenced. Police investigators will interview the complaining witness, bystanders, and may try to interview you as well. It is CRUCIAL that you have an attorney to advise you of your rights in these situations. Many times, a well-meaning person finds themselves under arrest even though they have cooperated with the police to clear their name.
A sexual assault charge is especially serious and can develop quickly. Many people are surprised to learn that a mere allegation can quickly result in an arrest and having their name tarnished and dragged through the mud.
