Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Aggressive criminal defense for Iowa sex crime charges

For Iowa residents accused of sex offenses, the experience can be a nightmare. In addition to the criminal charges, those accused of rape, sexual assault, child sex abuse and other sex crimes face ostracism from the community. A conviction can result not only in a prison sentence, but being listed as a registered sex offender is a lifelong stigma that can make it all but impossible to find a job, or even a place to live.

Facing such dire consequences, it is critical to aggressively fight sex crime charges. In many cases, these charges are the result of false allegations by an ex-spouse or a former girlfriend or boyfriend. In some cases, the alleged victim, or the parent of the alleged victim, will fabricate allegations of sexual misconduct out of spite or to gain leverage in a child custody or divorce proceeding. For this reason, it is essential to thoroughly investigate the claims and look for evidence casting doubt on the alleged victim's story.

At the criminal defense firm of J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth, Attorneys at Law, we have years of experience defending Iowa residents accused of sex crimes. We know the importance of scrutinizing the prosecution's case for weaknesses and inconsistencies. When necessary, we work with investigators to interview witnesses and examine the alleged crime scene. We also work with expert witnesses to analyze the physical evidence relied on by the prosecution.

In many cases, we are able to get the charges dropped before trial. If it is necessary to go to trial, we work aggressively to defeat the prosecution's case and secure an acquittal from the jury. There is more information about Iowa criminal defense strategies at our law firm web page.
