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

sexual in nature. Whatever the case may be, our Olathe criminal defense
attorney can gather evidence and build a strong defense on your behalf.
