Traveling businessman from Atlanta area facing sex charges

When someone in Atlanta, Georgia, is facing sex charges, they have more than their freedom on the line. Their reputation and their future are at stake. The court of public opinion may convict a person who has been charged without the benefit of an actual trial in a court of law.

A businessman from Lawrenceville, Georgia, now finds himself facing these dilemmas. He was arrested earlier this month on charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and predatory criminal sexual assault. According to reports, the man was being held on a $200,000 bond in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, after an incident at a hotel swimming pool.

According to authorities, the 55-year-old man was at a Ramada hotel near O'Hare International Airport outside of Chicago and told two girls and a woman that he was a lifeguard and offered them swimming lessons. The man then allegedly molested the girls, ages 10 and 11, and sexually assaulted a 27-year-old woman.

While many people reading the account -- which, it should be noted, is that of the prosecutor in the case -- might assume that the man is guilty, there is much information that has not yet come to light. The businessman's version of events have yet to be disclosed, and it is not clear if there are any witnesses to the events.

In any case, people who have been accused of sex crimes undoubtedly realize that such serious allegations require a serious response from attorneys who are experienced in sex crimes defense.
