The #MeToo movement is a valiant and respectable mobilization of advocacy, which has sought to render justice on behalf of victims across America who have dealt with sexual abuse.
This social justice movement started out in Hollywood’s inner circles. The movement gave voices to a predominantly female base of accusers who publicly shared their harrowing stories of victimhood. Over the past few years, shocking accusations have been made.
The names of powerful music, television, and film executives have come up, as well as the numerous allegations of sex crimes that were lodged at them. As a result, serious felony charges, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sodomy have been filed against some notable Hollywood figures in a number of criminal cases.
Unfortunately, in a percentage of these cases, defendants have had their livelihoods threatened and taken away based on inconsistent and poorly verified stories, which have been told by some accusers. When facing felony charges that involve serious sex crimes, mounting an aggressive legal defense team is critical.
