Rape, Date Rape and Statutory Rape Defense in Georgia
Rape is one of the only crimes where you can be prosecuted based on nothing more than the word of the alleged victim without any corroborating evidence. As a result, these charges are extremely dangerous. With the possibility of a significant prison sentence and lifetime registration as a sex offender, the stakes are very high.
For the past 70 years, Garland, Samuel & Loeb has maintained a sterling reputation for positive results, ethical representation and discretion in defense of those accused of sex crimes in the southeastern United States and beyond.
Attorney Ed Garland obtained a dismissal of sexual assault allegations by a 20-year-old college student against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. (Read about more of our successes in the Cases and In the News pages.)
Protecting Your Reputation
Whenever you are accused of a serious crime, you need a professional handling your defense from the very beginning. At no time is this more important than if you are accused of a sex crime such as rape. By talking to investigators without representation, you could unknowingly give the state the very information it needs to arrest you.
Our lawyers have a wealth of experience defending both “high-profile” and “ordinary” cases. Our lawyers will meticulously investigate all of the circumstances around the case. We have extensive experience analyzing police interviews of the alleged victims for improper interview techniques and influence as well as conducting detailed background investigations into the alleged victim. Our lawyers will not rest on the evidence provided by the state, they will do their own investigation to find evidence that helps to exonerate our clients.
