A conviction for a sex crime can affect your life in a much more substantial and negative way than most other criminal offenses. At Heckert & Associates, we understand how these consequences will change your life, and we will work tirelessly to defend your rights and your future.
Gross sexual imposition, or GSI, is a charge brought against any person who has engaged in sexual contact with a person under the age of 13. A GSI conviction may harm both your personal and professional lives in the future. The consequences can include:
- Determining where you are permitted to live
- The quality of your marriage
- Potential jail time
- Loss of employment
- You may be viewed differently and judged by your peers
- Inclusion in the Ohio Sex Offender Registry
This is a small list of the potential consequences you face if convicted of gross sexual imposition. If you are charged with GSI, we encourage you to contact one of the assault attorneys at the firm of Heckert & Associates. Our defense lawyers will begin working to investigate your case immediately.
Rape - Sexual Assault - False Allegations
A sexual assault charge can be the result of a false allegation. Whether these allegations are based on retaliation, confusion or anger, our attorneys will work diligently to defend your rights. We will investigate the arrest report, the medical reports, and interview witnesses to create a compelling defense in your case.
An aggressive defense means challenging everything.
An allegation of rape carries with it an immediate, negative social stigma. Cases based around these charges can be very pro-prosecution and anti-defense. Even the medical language has a negative connotation in that doctors complete what is termed a "rape kit" rather than a more neutral "physical examination." Our lawyers will work to overcome these challenges and stereotypes while striving to obtain a successful resolution to your case.
