Maybe the hardest charge to win at trial is Child Molestation (Rape). The allegation itself prompts prospective jurors to visualize a person charged with committing the act. RENSCH LAW has tried many of these types of cases. While admittedly there have been convictions, there have been many acquittals. There have also been convictions which were reversed on appeal after RENSCH LAW prepared the appellate briefs and made the appellate arguments.
Each case is unique and there is never a guaranteed result. But the experience of RENSCH LAW, and the trial lawyers at RENSCH LAW, can help people through these earth shaking allegations, charges, and trial.
The lawyers at RENSCH LAW, under the tutelage of Timothy J. Rensch, have learned how to gather the records necessary to properly evaluating the contentions of the alleged victim. While such is unusual, in one recent case RENSCH LAW successfully pushed a serious case to a dismissal by the prosecution after discovering exculpatory information in an extended records search. As a result, Aggravated Kidnapping, Kidnapping, and repeated child rape charges were dismissed.
RENSCH LAW is also known for vigorous, damaging, and powerful cross-examinations, although such is really determined by the case, the facts, and the person being cross-examined.
Other sex offenses, like forcible rape, sexual contact, statutory rape, are routinely handled by RENSCH LAW.
