How to Use “False Allegations” as a Defense Strategy

Being falsely accused of a crime is a scary and stressful experience. If you have been arrested and charged with a crime you didn’t commit, it is important to seek experienced criminal defense services right away. Our firm can help determine if false allegations can be used as a defense strategy for your case.

Here’s What You Need to Know

False allegations means that the plaintiff made false statements regarding your involvement in the crime. This is common for those accused of domestic violence, sexual crimes, assault, or other crimes. If your ex-spouse is making false claims against you, or someone else has accused you of committing a crime, it is important to gather evidence to use in support of your innocence.

Evidence may include:

  • Witness statements
  • Pictures or videos of the incident
  • Any written correspondence between the plaintiff and the defendant
  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Other documentation of the incident

In the United States criminal justice system, defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, false accusations may result in a long and stressful process of clearing your name. The court must consider all the facts when determine your guilt. If you use the claim of false allegations as a defense strategy, our firm can conduct a thorough investigation to build your case. We can use the facts of the case, as well as any bias or prejudice the plaintiff may have against you, as support to your claim of innocence as you seek to lessen or drop the charges.
