When you need an attorney who
is willing to fight aggressively to protect your freedom and your
reputation, having experienced counsel really counts.
Few situations can be as devastating
to a client as being arrested–or investigated–for date rape.
Devastating accusations such as these can result in arrest, even without
corroborating evidence, forensic evidence, or even ample reason to doubt the accuser’s motives. Often, date rape cases are assigned to
aggressive and even overzealous
prosecutors and police detectives. When that happens, some attorneys are reluctant to
aggressively defend clients in these cases.
When clients are accused of date rape, many clients
(and their families) fear everyone —including
neighbors, friends, coworkers, and even close family—will assume
guilt. Alec Rose believes you are entitled to an effective,
professional defense. He believes in preparing to aggressively
defend you and your freedom. When your freedom, your reputation, and
your future is in jeopardy , Alec Rose will prepare to take your
case to trial and to seeking dismissal of these humiliating charges.
Your attorney must be ready to pursue
an aggressive defense to a date rape charge as soon as the accusation
Clients should also be
aware that there is rarely an
acceptable plea bargain available for any sex crime, including date rape.
And. in Los Angeles
County, sex crime charges carry very high bail. Most of the crimes
carry prison sentences or very severe conditions if probation is
granted at all. Nearly all date rape convictions require
registration with the police and publication of your personal
information on the Meghan’s Law database. Registration is a
lifetime requirement in nearly all situations. For these reasons,
Alec Rose knows that a good result in a date rape case in Los Angeles
begins with an aggressive, creative, and effective defense strategy.
The earlier in your case you hire counsel, the better your chances
of getting the results you need.
If you believe you are being
investigated for date rape, you need legal counsel immediately.
Most alleged date rapes occur in private. When
police hear allegations of date rape they don’t expect the accuser to have
corroborating evidence such as eyewitnesses or physical evidence.
For this reason, they have developed investigation strategies that
focus on forcing the accused to make incriminating statements. If
the police are investigating an allegation about you, or want you to
answer questions, you can assume that their goal is to arrest you.
You need an attorney who has helped clients survive these
investigations. The right advice may help you avoid arrest entirely.
Why hire Alec Rose, a Certified
Criminal Law Specialist?
His career focus has been on
aggressively representing clients charged with serious crimes such
as date rape (also referred to as “acquaintance
rape”), sexual battery, and crimes against minors. His experience
and excellence in defending these cases led to Court TV selecting
him as a frequent guest commentator during the Michael Jackson
trial. Mr. Rose has also been recognized and quoted for his
expertise in the area of date rape defense by Los Angeles area
legal publications such as the Daily Journal, newspapers such as the
Los Angeles Times, and even entertainment publications such as US
cases involve unique
aspects of California evidence law. The legislature has added
special provisions to the evidence code to allow prosecutors to use
evidence against the accused that is not usually admissible in other
types of criminal cases. “Fresh Complaints” which may merely
consist of the same groundless accusations against you repeated
again and again, are admissible hearsay. Allegations by other people
of “sexual misconduct” may be admitted to prove your guilt, even
if these “charges” were never reported, never investigated, and
never prosecuted! In these types of case, you need an attorney who has experience in
responding to these strategies so that you still have a chance to
win a fair trial. This is where experienced counsel really counts!
Mr. Rose has a reputation for taking
on difficult cases and has defended clients that other
attorneys believed had hopeless cases. He is not afraid of
aggressive prosecutors or hostile courts. He has represented clients

represented clients charged with some of the most serious and
complex date rape cases in Southern California. He has

side of the evidence and consider the potential for false
accusations. He brings a level of assured experience in fighting for
clients that few attorneys can match. He believes that
every client deserves the best possible, most creative defense.

What Makes Mr. Rose successful in
defending those accused of date rape?
He believes that the following
characteristics of his practice are especially suited to defending
clients charged with sexual crimes:
- Proven Results—He has
defended many people charged with or accused of date rapes and
has gotten many such cases dismissed and rejected by
prosecutors. He has taken on cases with multiple accusers, DNA
evidence, and even alleged “confessions” his clients were
tricked into by police or by opportunists. Some of his cases
have made news headlines, and he has presented his
client’s side of the matter to the media effectively and
ethically when such publicity could not be avoided.
- Personal Attention to each
Client—If you call Mr. Rose about your case, you will speak to
Mr. Rose. If you hire him, he will personally be your
defense lawyer. There are no subcontractor attorneys, and no
“Case Managers” to shield Mr. Rose from providing you his
own time and experience. Mr. Rose personally respects your
reputation, your freedom, and your decision to hire the best
counsel you can for your case.
- Effective Case Preparation—You
need an attorney who fully understands how to present your case
in the best possible way. Even if your ultimate aim is to settle
the case, you will only get a good settlement if the prosecutors
believe your lawyer is prepared to effectively try your case.
Can a “positive DNA match” be explained?? What about several
“independent” accusers each claiming that the client
sexually assaulted them? What about a pretext phone-call
resulting in an “admission” of the accusations? Many
examples of devastating and seemingly insurmountable evidence
can be overcome by careful and creative case preparation by a
lawyer who has fought similar cases before. Mr. Rose has
defended cases in Southern California with facts like these, and
he has helped clients show their innocence and avoid
convictions, even with allegedly “positive” DNA tests.
- Jury Selection skills—Many
people have false conceptions about date rape accusations, and how to judge
such cases. Often, they don’t even know how prejudiced they
are. In Los Angeles area date rape trials, jury selection is
often the most important factor in the outcome of a trial. Only
an attorney who has selected juries for date rape cases many
times before can sort through a panel and effectively eliminate
the most biased jurors and select people who are open to
considering your innocence.
- Expertise, Legal Knowledge, and
Excellence—The State Bar of California has only recognized a
few hundred of its many thousands of members as Certified
Specialists in Criminal Law. Mr. Rose is proud to be one of
those attorneys. Consider the certification requirements.
California certified specialists must pass a written examination
in their specialty field, demonstrate a high level of expertise
and experience in their field, fulfill ongoing education
requirements, and undergo an evaluation process by other
attorneys and judges familiar with their work.
- Effective Strategies to Avoid or
Minimize Charges Before a Case is Filed—Many times, a person
becomes aware that an investigation exists before an arrest or
case filing. If charges can be avoided or minimized, you will
have the best chance of avoiding higher costs, publicity, or the
expense of posting bail. This can be the most beneficial time to
hire an experienced attorney. With Mr. Rose’s help, you can
consider strategies that may help you ultimately win the case.
If you are charged or under investigation, Mr. Rose will devise
a plan of action to develop evidence of your innocence or gather
documentation of your accuser’s motives for potentially
falsifying an accusation. Many people are more willing to come
forward before the police charge you. The sooner you plan for
your defense, the more effective it can be.
