Fighting False Allegations Of Sexual Violence

Rape and other forms of sexual violence are wrong. However, it is possible for an individual to be faced with false allegations of sexual offenses. If you find yourself in such a case, you will need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can aggressively represent your rights in court.

My name is Michael C. Gonzalez. My firm, Mike G. Law, defends clients in the Tampa Bay area facing false allegations of sexual violence. My tenure as a former assistant state attorney for Florida enables me to understand how the prosecution may construct its case against you.

Factors That May Influence False Sexual Violence Allegations

Often, the circumstances leading to a false allegation are complicated. Some alleged victims may feel resentful about how things have turned out in a romantic relationship. In short-term relationships or one-time sexual experiences, there may be questions related to consent between the two parties, especially if one or both were intoxicated. Another complicating factor occurs when the alleged victim is underaged; the defendant may not have been aware of this, as people wanting to appear more mature than they are have been known to misrepresent their age.

How I Help Clients Combat False Allegations

My goal as your lawyer is to help you avoid the stigma and long-lasting impact of a sex offense conviction if you have been falsely accused. I will carefully evaluate the evidence against you. I will identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case and provide you with an aggressive defense of your due process rights.

Depending on the unique circumstances of your case, I may be able to provide these or other positive outcomes for you:

  • The opportunity for participation in the Pretrial Intervention (PTI) program for first-time offenders
  • An agreement to plead guilty to a lesser charge that is not a sexual offense and carries less stigma and fewer ongoing consequences
  • Having the charges against you dropped
