People who are accused of any form of criminal activity in Pennsylvania can often feel as though they have few options for a successful defense. This can be the case for those facing sex crime charges, drug charges or other such criminal charges. However, it is important to note that the defense process is a vital part of our nation’s judicial system and defendants do have rights and opportunities.
When Pennsylvania parents send their children to college this fall, they may worry that their daughters, especially, will be changed forever by the trauma of sexual assault.
