Volusia County Sexual Abuse Defense Lawyer
Handling State and Federal Sex Crime Charges Since 2000
During Ms. Jaques experience as a prosecutor, she was involved in all aspects of criminal prosecution from intake to trial. As a result, she has a depth of "behind the scenes" knowledge about the motivations of some alleged sex crimes victims' motivation. Often, there is a hidden agenda in these types of cases, such as getting the upper hand in a child custody case, or a scorned family member taking on a vindictive "scorched earth" approach to dealing with their problems.
Cases involving allegations of a sexual nature carry great stigma, regardless of whether there is ultimately a conviction. A person facing this type of criminal charge needs an advocate that can see through the web of lies and allegations.
Unlike many attorneys, we won't turn you away due to the potentially controversial nature of your case. We understand that many sex crimes can lead to life in prison or the need to register as a sex offender. We are willing to go to trial to protect your rights.
