Las Vegas Jehovah’s Witness charged with sexually assaulting teen church member

Posted by Neil Shouse | Mar 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

Last week authorities arrested 55-year-old Las Vegas resident Carlos Alfonso Perez for allegedly raping a teenage girl between 2012 and 2014. They attended the same kingdom hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. He is facing three counts of sexual assault with a minor under 14,and two counts of sexual assault with a minor under 16. 

"A common defense in sexual assault cases is false accusations," commented Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Michael Becker about this case. "Sometimes an innocent person is wrongly accused out of anger or revenge. As long as the prosecution has insufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt...which is a very high standard...the charge should be dropped."
