You have a window of opportunity that those already charged with a serious criminal charge can no longer take advantage of. Mr. Davis can contact the police investigators before they recommend filing, and the prosecutors as well –before they file formal charges. Mr. Davis can share your side of the story whereas you absolutely SHOULD NOT make such an attempt without legal counsel. You cannot because you are the suspect and trying to make a behind-the-scenes case for dismissal of charges being assembled against you just gives the police and prosecutors more to use against you (remember they are professionals at building cases and would love for you to voluntarily talk to them without an attorney present). If you haven’t seen enough TV shows, let us advise you once again: voluntarily SPEAKING WITH police investigators without an attorney at your side is a very bad idea.
Mr. Davis has a career spanning some 26-years where he has had the opportunity to intervene early, and consequently, criminal charges were never filed. So if charges are still pending, take advantage of the opportunity while it exists. If successful, you will avoid arrest, jail, and the more challenging and costly proposition of defending against serious criminal charges. Moreover, such a preemptive win would make certain there there is no public view-able record of child molestation charges for all to see! If charges are filed and subsequently found to be false, or you are found to be innocent, such culturally-potent “charges” can still prove to be embarrassing and cause serious damage to one’s personal reputation.
