If you have been arrested for sexual assault, your first step should be to contact an experienced Fullerton Wallin & Klarich attorney. We can form a strong defense strategy that could result in a dismissal of your charge. Here are some successful defenses that your sexual assault defense lawyers at Wallin & Klarich can raise on your behalf:

Defenses to Sexual Assault in Fullerton


The strongest defense to a sexual assault charge is a claim of actual innocence. For example, if your Wallin & Klarich can present a strong alibi in your case – for instance, if you were not at the scene of the crime at the time of the incident – you may not be convicted of sexual assault. To use this defense effectively, your Wallin & Klarich attorney will investigate the facts thoroughly and form a strong legal argument that proves you were not the real attacker.


If you accidentally touched the victim, you cannot be convicted of sexual assault because you did not touch the victim for the purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse. Your Wallin & Klarich attorney can argue that you lacked the necessary intent to be convicted of sexual assault.

False Accusations

In many cases, an innocent person is charged with sexual assault due to an alleged victim who falsely accuses the defendant of the offense out of spite. To fight baseless sexual assault accusations, your Fullerton Wallin & Klarich attorneys will carefully examine the facts of your case and the victim’s history of allegations. The Wallin & Klarich team of Fullerton sex crimes defense attorneys will scrutinize the credibility of the victim’s claim to ensure that it is factually accurate.


Often times, an innocent person is charged with sexual assault when the defendant actually and reasonably believed that the victim consented to the act. Your Wallin & Klarich attorney can argue that you truly believed that the victim had consented to the touching, and that an objectively reasonable person would have made the same determination.
By using a combination of these and other defenses, your Wallin & Klarich attorney may be able to get your sexual assault charge dismissed.
