You've heard it before: there are at least two sides to every story. But the old adage may be especially fitting in cases of alleged assault. A dispute arises between two individuals, and exactly what happened becomes a matter of investigation. Not everyone who is accused of assault is guilty, and often a criminal defense attorney has to take a closer look at the evidence to get down to the actual facts.
A person can face sex crime charges years after the alleged offense. That was the case recently in Tarrant County, where a former pastor is accused of sexually assaulting a child younger than 14. The allegations date back to the 1990s.
