Sex Abuse, Sodomy, Rape Charges In Kenton County, KY

For the past week I have been in trial regarding charges of sex abuse, sodomy and rape in Kenton County against a step father of a minor child.  These are the hardest of the criminal defense cases involving allegations by a child of explicit sexual nature against a relative. In some cases there is evidence that the crime has occurred. In others, it is the word of a child against that of the defendant.  Most juries tend to believe the word of a child, opining, "Why would a child make up such allegations."  Unfortunately there are often a large number of reasons that  a child may fabricate such allegations, however the Defendant may be limited in the ability to utilize or prove those reasons. The greatest difficulty is in disproving the negative.  In virtually every case of family member, there is ample opportunity for the alleged acts to have occurred.  Try to imagine that you have to account for a 3-4 year period and claim that there was no time that you were alone with a family member.  Even if it is true, imagine trying to prove that you were not alone to a jury. These allegations often are charged as A Felonies.  An A felony is punishable by 20-50 years, or life, in prison.  Even if the jury convicts on only 1 count of a multiple count indictment, the defendant is facing life in prison. For what it is worth.  Defense attorneys work their asses off to defend their clients.  Often the client does not appreciate anything that the attorney does to handle the case.  The client, especially if convicted, believes that the defense attorney was either working against them, working with the prosecution or is trying to get them convicted... nothing could be further from the truth.  Not every case has a happy ending and in cases of alleged sex abuse, there is no such thing.
