Sexual Assault

Do You Need a Racine or Kenosha Sexual Assault Attorney?

If you are facing sexual assault charges, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, then you are dealing with the full resources of the local District Attorney prosecuting your case. The community will expect the prosecutor to use the full weight and vigor of the law to seek a conviction. People facing charges for sexual assault are looking at not only time in jail, but the harsh consequences of being listed on their state’s sex offender registry.

If you are being investigated for sexual assault, or have already been charged in a community in Southeastern Wisconsin, don’t give the prosecutor a chance to build a strong case. Call the criminal defense attorneys at Cafferty & Scheidegger, S.C., in Racine or Kenosha Wisconsin.

Keeping Your Record Clear of a Sex Offense Conviction Is Our Top Priority

The consequences of being convicted of a sexual assault crime can be devastating. It is critically important to your future to defend aggressively everything about the charges against you. Our firm has the technical resources and expertise to question and challenge successfully the prosecutor’s evidence. We take great care in the preparation of cases and works with professionals, when necessary, to investigate the evidence and build the clearest possible case for reducing or dismissing the charges.
