Building A Strong Defense Against Sex Crime Charges

Sex crimes charges have a unique and particularly challenging place in the legal system. Whereas everyone charged with a crime gets their due process, people and even friends and family can be quick to judge those accused of these types of crimes. Rumor and innuendo before the trial can be all it takes for the defendant to become an outcast in their own community.

At The Law Office of Miya Griggs, we often focus on helping those facing the most challenging of criminal charges at the state and federal level. We understand the nature of sex crimes charges and have the knowledge and experience to help individuals fight the charges and protect their personal and professional reputation. We understand that law enforcement can be like the rest of society and jump to conclusions, and perhaps make mistakes in the performance of their duties.

Defenses Against Sex Charges

Formerly a prosecutor for the Fulton County district attorney's office, Ms. Griggs is a defense lawyer who understands the legal process in Georgia, and how to work effectively in a courtroom for the best possible outcome. We always believe that clients are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. While some may assume our clients are guilty, we know that there are arguments for defending them. These include:

  • The act was consensual.
  • The sexual activity did not occur.
  • The facts were inaccurate or mischaracterized.
  • The individual charged was misidentified.
  • The individual charged was mentally incapacitated.
