Typically the sooner your attorney can become involved, the better the chances of securing critical evidence. Evidence in rape cases may include DNA, video and other physical evidence that may have a relatively short life span.
Physical evidence may be available immediately after the alleged rape. This evidence can be used in your defense if you obtain an effective team of defense lawyers immediately.
