Sex crimes often involve blood, hair, fiber, and DNA evidence that must be carefully collected and handled by experienced forensic experts. In all too many cases, however, police and investigators fail to secure and process a crime scene or the victim of an alleged sex crime. When an angry co-worker, ex-girlfriend, or neighbor makes allegations involve rape or sexual assault, a failure to handle evidence appropriately can determine the outcome of a trial.
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we work with experienced forensic specialists and lab technicians in reviewing the handling and processing of evidence from an alleged rape or sexual assault. Recognizing the possibility of false allegations and the role mental instability can play, Mr. Brower also consults psychologists and private investigators in challenging the reliability of the alleged victim's claims and statements to police.

Intent - If You've had Sexual Contact with Your Accuser
In cases involving adults and allegations of rape, even if you've had sexual contact with your accuser, prosecutors must prove you forcibly raped the alleged victim. Here, the physical evidence against you may not be as important as the personal history of your accuser and your relationship with him or her. As your attorney, Mr. Brower looks for patterns of behavior, psychological instability, or drug and alcohol addiction. Additionally, any grounds for personal animosity will be investigated to expose vendettas and other factors that can undermine the prosecution's version of events.

There are a number of factors to consider when defending against rape and sex crime charges. The testimony of the victim and physical evidence must be scrutinized, as well as the actions of police and investigators. In child molestation cases, how investigators question a child may impact whether the child offers plausible testimony or simply repeats what is suggested to him or her.
