It is very easy to get arrested for a sex crime in Jacksonville. Unlike most other crimes, there is little evidence in sex crimes. It is often the word of one or two people, that’s all. If a detective contacts you and requests that you come down to talk to him or her about possible accusations of sexual misconduct, DO NOT speak to them! Contact a Jacksonville Sex Crime Attorney as soon as possible to discuss your rights.
