Criminal defense attorneys have the time to fight for you

The main reason you should hire a criminal defense attorney is because a Wallin & Klarich Rape Defense Attorney will take the time to fight for your freedom. Public defenders try hard. However, we receive phone calls every day from people asking us to take over their case. They tell us that the public defender was trying to handle their case along with 25 to 50 other cases in the same morning. They tell us that they have never been given a copy of their police report. They tell us they have never met with their public defender to go over their defenses and strategy. There is too much at stake when you are facing a criminal charge such as rape to not have an experienced private sex crimes law firm fighting for you.

Successfully defending a rape charge in Riverside takes time. The Riverside attorneys at Wallin & Klarich will carefully review the facts of your case and conduct a thorough investigation of the allegations against you. Your Wallin & Klarich attorneys will tailor a strong rape defense strategy specifically designed for your case.

Wallin & Klarich can help you avoid jail time

The experienced Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys at Wallin & Klarich can raise a number of defenses on your behalf, including:

Mistaken Identity

In many rape cases, the victim is unable to adequately identify his or her attacker. This may be because the rape occurred at night or under dim lighting or the attacker was wearing a disguise at the time of the incident. If the victim was unable to identify his or her attacker, you may have a complete defense to your rape charges.

False Accusations

A victim may have an illegitimate reason for accusing you of rape. Sometimes, the victim may claim rape due to jealousy or anger towards you. The Wallin & Klarich team of Riverside Rape Defense Attorneys will scrutinize the credibility of the victim’s claim to ensure that it is accurate. We will also look at the victim’s history of allegations to determine whether a suspicious pattern of false accusations exists.


If the victim consents to the intercourse, then you have a complete defense to rape. You are not guilty of rape if you actually and reasonably believed that the victim consented to the intercourse. The court will consider the circumstances surrounding the incident to determine whether your belief that the victim consented was reasonable.

Your Wallin & Klarich Rape Defense Attorneys may be able to use any of the defenses to get your charges reduced or dismissed, which will help you avoid jail time.
