Rape Defense Attorney
Serious Accusations Require Steadfast Defense – Call 414.882.8382
When you have been accused of rape – one of the most serious of all
sex crimes in Wisconsin State legislation – you will immediately feel a magnifying
glass over you and your entire life. The prosecution is going to start
picking apart your history, looking for anything to use against you. The
public and the media are also likely to judge you, casting you in an unfair
and biased light before the details of your case are even established.

lawyer is ready to stand up for his clients, no matter the severity of
the charges they are facing. The criminal justice system simply does not
work if it is not balanced; by working closely with our clients and doing
all we can to ensure that they are treated fairly in court, we hope to
uphold that balance.

- 20+ years of legal and trial experience
- 1,000+ criminal cases handled
- Insight gained by being led by a former prosecutor

Your defense starts with you seeking legal counsel.

Rape Definition and Punishment
Consent to sexual activity has to be explicitly given by both individuals
in order for it to be legal. In some cases, this is where complications
can arise. Misunderstandings may lead to different opinions as to whether
or not rape has occurred. The trouble is piecing the situation back together
and relying on facts, rather than one person’s word against the
others. With our experience and know-how, we hope to show that the accusations
you are facing are false or exaggerated, warranting either a case dismissal
or charge reduction.
Some of the penalties you could face if you do not prepare your case may
- Fines paid to the state
- Restitution paid to the alleged victim
- Years in prison
Mandatory Sex Offender Registration
With most sex crimes, and nearly-all rape convictions, the accused must
go through mandatory sex offender registration after sentencing. This
list is made public and sometimes must be brought to the attention of
parties in close proximity when moving or accepting a new job. Needless
to say, rather than helping people avoid more trouble, this list often
only creates undue stress upon the lives of those included. People have
lost jobs, educational opportunities, and even the right to live in their
building due to the sex offender registration. For this consequence and
all the rest, you must fight your rape accusations.
