Rick Coad is a criminal defense lawyer who defends people accused of sexual assault. He has successfully defended charges of first degree sexual assault, second degree sexual assault, third degree sexual assault, fourth degree sexual assault, sexual assault of a child, statutory rape, and enticement, among others. Sexual assault cases can turn on aggressive investigation, challenging physical evidence, and intensive preparation for trial.
The circumstances involved in these cases can vary widely. Rick has defended cases where the complaining witness has claimed she was too intoxicated to consent. In other cases, a complaining witness may allege that she consented to certain sexual activity, but then did not consent to other sexual activity. Often, there are no other witnesses, and a case can come down to the combination of “he said/she said” and little physical evidence. It is scary to be accused of such an offense. Rick Coad understands how to investigate these cases, which experts to use to his clients’ advantage, what motions to file (such as a Shiffra/Green motion to get medical and counseling records), and how to defend them at trial if needed. Often, however, if a case is handled properly from a defense perspective, a defense lawyer can achieve excellent results without going to trial. Even in the most difficult of cases, it is possible avoid the most serious potential outcomes and get a just result.
