Rape

Sex crimes are very serious matters, and at Garton & Vogt, P.C., we take your defense extremely seriously. Whether you have been accused or charged, our services can help you. We prepare strong cases to defend our clients against serious charges and dangerous investigations.

We are fully capable of protecting your privacy, reputation, family, and freedom. Our experienced Macomb County rape defense attorneys understand the high stakes of rape allegations and the complex nature of cases that often involve very complicated expert medical witness testimony.

Experienced Attorneys With A History Of Success

Our law firm has been defending people against rape allegations and charges for more than 25 years. We know how difficult it is to maintain the innocence of an accused rapist in front of a jury, and we know how difficult it is to protect our clients' reputations and families even after they are acquitted or found not guilty.

It is important that you do not speak to law enforcement officers, investigators or prosecutors without first speaking with one of our attorneys. You have the right to remain silent.

If You Are Facing Rape, Statutory Rape, or Date Rape Charges

Do not attempt to explain the situation or even deny accusations without a lawyer present. Your Miranda rights include the right to remain silent. Denying charges or making up excuses can work against you and actually get you into more trouble. Police are not your friends; they will use every statement you make against you. Legally, if you request a lawyer, you cannot be interrogated until your lawyer is with you.

Penalties for rape depend on the severity of the crime you could be convicted of, but they include public listing on the sex offender registry for either 25 years or life.

We can find and present evidence that favors your case and work to prevent charges from ever being filed. False allegations, witness manipulation and distortion of the facts by prosecutors are common in these cases, especially when children are involved.

Our attorneys are extensively experienced at defending people in situations where the alleged victim consented to sexual contact, misinterpreted so-called aggressive or forcible behavior or claimed sexual acts that never occurred.
