Olathe Sexual Battery Defense

Results-Focused Representation from Martin & Wallentine

When people think of battery, they often assume that serious injury must occur in order for charges to be filed. This is not always true. Charges of sexual battery can be made simply because someone made physical contact with the accuser in a way that they considered to be inappropriate or sexual.

Many times these accusations are made out of anger or fear, either by a bitter boy/girlfriend or a frightened individual who has mistaken your identity. It may also be the case that your actions were mistaken to be sexual in nature. Whatever the case may be, our Olathe criminal defense attorney can gather evidence and build a strong defense on your behalf.
