Sex Crimes Attorney In Atlanta

Being charged with a sex offense in Atlanta or elsewhere in Georgia can come as a shock, but it is imperative that you act quickly to defend yourself. The stakes in terms of long prison sentences, being listed on a sex offenders registry, and the damage to your personal and community reputation are simply too high to leave anything about your defense to chance.

At the firm of Pratt & Wall, Attorneys at Law, our founding lawyer handles sex crimes cases as part of his criminal defense practice. He will thoroughly examine the evidence that has been gathered through an investigation or after an arrest has been made. He is often able to find weaknesses in the prosecution's case that can lead to charges not being filed or being dismissed before trial. He is not afraid to take your case to trial if that is the best path to a positive result for you.

Building Successful Defenses Against Sex Crimes

Our practice has defended clients against a wide variety of sex crimes under Georgia law, including:

  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation and aggravated child molestation
  • Sexual exploitation of a child
  • Sexual battery

Our defense investigation begins with a review of statements by the alleged victim or witnesses. Our attorney is on the lookout for inconsistencies and considers the circumstances under which the statements were made. He will identify any failures by law enforcement or social workers to follow standard protocols in obtaining statements, particularly by children.

Mr. Pratt will also scrutinize the backgrounds of the persons involved in the case on the prosecution's side. Questionable motives or excessive grievances can indicate the possibility of a false accusation. He will also review the medical evidence in the case and follow up with health care personnel involved in caring for the alleged victim. Missing information or a mismatch between the allegations and the medical evidence can severely damage the state's case against you.
