Being Accused of a Sex Crime in Pennsylvania
As with most states, Pennsylvania law enforcement and district attorney offices consider sexual crimes involving minors to be the most heinous of crimes, perhaps even more heinous than other violent crimes such as homicide or even prolonged child physical abuse.
When an individual is accused of sexual assault in PA, local law enforcement agencies are the first party to become involved. Such allegations are pursued relentlessly. No law enforcement agency wants to be held responsible for failing to pursue any allegation of sexual misconduct, particularity if directed toward a child. If the police believe that there is even a hint of validity to the accusations, a “train” begins to roll with momentum that almost never stops until the jury makes its decision.
Preparing for an Arrest
Once the detective in charge of your case has gathered as much “evidence” as possible, he or she will submit the evidence to the District Attorney’s office where a determination will be made as to whether the case should move forward. In cases involving alleged sexual abuse, a verbal accusation by a child unfortunately is often enough to initiate the arrest. If you feel that you are being investigated, it’s important to begin to prepare your defense.
