Defending the wrongfully accused
Below is one example of a case Keren Goldenberg worked on behalf of a client who had false claims levied against him.
The client was accused of sexually assaulting his ex-girlfriend’s daughter. The jury agreed with Keren’s defense that the child made up the accusation because she was jealous that the client had left her mother and had a new girlfriend and baby. The jury quickly found Keren’s client not guilty.
These types of false accusations can happen in a myriad of locations. The instance above shows the type of case between two people who were in a domestic relationship. False allegations of sexual harassment or sexual assault can also happen in the workplace. A company is obligated to investigate instances of workplace sexual harassment. This responsibility may fall into the jurisdiction of the Human Resources department, or it may go to an attorney if the company does not have a Human Resources department.
The accused person may be suspended by the company while the investigation takes place, ultimately cutting into their income and creating a negative stigma against the accused around the office. Even if their name is eventually cleared, it could very well lead to a damaged reputation. If the accusations are serious enough, the individual could lose their job and as well as their standing in their community. This is why hiring a criminal defense lawyer for accusations of sexual assault or false sexual harassment claims is so important.
HR departments do not investigate sexual assault or harassment claims the same ways a criminal court does. There is no impartial judge or jury.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference when the situation feels helpless
It is important to view each allegation of sexual assault as an individual case — and to not jump to conclusions before learning all of the facts.
Collateral damage follows baseless accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault because valid harassment claims may become devalued and may be looked upon skeptically. When an accusation is proven to be false, it often raises the possibility in an individual’s mind that the next allegation of a similar nature may also not be credible.
Remember, being falsely accused of sexual harassment or sexual assault can negatively impact a person’s career and reputation, and even worse, can lead to fines or jail time if prosecuted in a court of law. That is why it is best to hire a criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights and freedom.
