Walnut Creek Criminal Defense Attorney
Protecting Clients from Rape Accusations in the East Bay
Rape is a heinous crime that involves forcibly making penetrating sexual
contact with another individual against their will. Because of the catastrophic
effects rape can have on the lives of victims, the social stigma and pressure
on these charges is tremendous, and it is not uncommon for prosecutors
and juries to recommend the maximum possible punishments for those who
are convicted. Unfortunately, this has also led to a number of false claims
that have in turn ruined the lives of those who are accused.
If you are facing rape charges, Attorney Michael Cardoza understands that
your case is likely going to be extremely emotionally charged, highly
complex, and be stressfully overwhelming. At

back against their accusations to help restore their reputation. As a
Walnut Creek criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Cardoza has taken more than
