Win With Wagoner Put Over 15 Years of Experience on Your Side

Sexual Assault Defense Lawyer in Wilmington

You Deserve a Strong Defense. We’re Here to Make Sure You Get It.

Being accused of sexual assault isn't something that only happens to back-alley rapists. In fact, quite the contrary is true, and all too often, unassuming people are labeled as predators after an incident they thought to have been consensual.

If you had sexual contact with someone who later claimed that they were too drunk to consent to any sort of sexual activity, for example, you could face sexual assault charges. A person can even face sexual assault charges within the context of a marriage. The charge is a broad one that includes any unwanted sexual contact, leaving a lot of room for interpretation, false accusations, and, sadly, unwarranted convictions.

If you are facing a charge of this nature, it doesn't matter what your intentions may have been: You need a defense lawyer to protect you against the potentially disastrous consequences a conviction could bring. And you need one right away.

The Role of “He Said, She Said” in Your Case

As with many sex crimes, people accused of sexual assault are often assumed by society to be guilty until proven innocent. What started as an intimate, private act between two people will quickly become a “he said, she said” situation in which the defendant has little to no support, despite the truth behind the matter at hand.

At The Wagoner Law Firm, P.L.L.C., however, that's not the case. We are committed to protecting the rights of those accused of sexual assault in North Carolina, and we’ve made it our mission to protect defendants against false accusations or potentially overblown charges.
