New Jersey prosecutors are notorious for the aggressive prosecution of sex crimes, particularly sex crimes involving young children. Unfortunately, not everyone accused of a sex crime is guilty.

The rules of evidence were created to limit the introduction of prejudicial evidence, and to ensure that the evidence that was allowed had some substantive impact on the matter at hand.

Sometimes intoxication is a factor in sexual assault allegations.
