Criminal Defense Attorneys For Rape Allegations In Albany
Our Ex-Prosecutors Understand How To Defend Against Serious Charges
If you’ve been charged with or are being investigated for rape, the attorneys at Patituce & Associates understand the seriousness of your situation. Just the allegation of rape is enough to damage marriages and friendships, end careers, and destroy your standing in the Albany community. It is a shocking charge to have leveled against you, and one that is extremely difficult to definitively disprove.
As you begin to grapple with this allegation, you need sound, commonsense advice, as well as a strong protector of your legal rights. Our attorneys are all of these things, and will stand with you, fighting to win back your reputation.
Don’t Help The Police Convict You
If you’re like most of our clients in this situation, your first impulse is to tell the police your side of the story – “what really happened” – and try to clear up what feels like a giant miscommunication. Don’t do this.
The police are in the business of gathering evidence and building a case. If you’ve been arrested, you were probably informed of your rights (and if you weren’t, we definitely need to talk) and the police told you that “anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.”
They meant that. You’re not helping yourself if you go to the police and shout your truth at them. You’re helping the police. You’re confirming details that may appear in the criminal complaint against you. Don’t help the police convict you. Help yourself by calling Patituce & Associates at 518-300-1331 today. The call and consultation are free, and it’s all you need to do to start protecting yourself in this process.
We Fight For You
Rape is an extremely difficult charge to disprove, which also makes it tricky to prove. Our experienced attorneys, including former Albany prosecutors, have a detailed knowledge of how rape cases are argued in the courts, and are your best bet in soundly battling back against unfounded accusations of wrongdoing.
The consequences of conviction are massive. First Degree Rape in New York carries a penalty of up to 25 years in prison and the remainder of your life as a registered sex offender, being hounded out of every community where you try to live. Statutory Rape, Spousal Rape, and other variations are prosecuted vigorously by District Attorneys eager to look tough on crime, and the media always loves a good sex scandal.
Don’t get caught up in it. The sooner you have counsel beside you, the sooner you can start doing the right things to protect yourself. The attorneys at Patituce & Associates know how to handle this process in Albany, and will be with you every step of the way, guiding you through and protecting your rights and freedoms.
