Rape & Sexual Battery

Rape, officially known as sexual battery, is a charge that can have far-reaching consequences now and for the rest of your life. If you are facing sexual battery charges, it is critical to have an experienced attorney protecting your interests and fighting aggressively to safeguard your personal reputation.

I'm Tupelo-area rape defense attorney Gene Barton, known as the "Bulldog of Mississippi" due to the way I aggressively defend my clients from these damaging criminal charges.

Note: I cannot defend cases in counties where I am a prosecutor, in the 3rd Circuit Court District (Benton, Calhoun, Chickasaw, Lafayette, Marshall, Tippah and Union counties). I can defend cases in all other counties in the state jurisdiction, including Tupelo-area counties such as Lee, Pontotoc, Monroe, Itawamba, Prentiss, Alcorn and Tishomingo counties and anywhere else in Mississippi, as well as in federal court.

My job is to use every means at my disposal to build an effective case on your behalf. I have been fighting for the rights of the accused as a defense lawyer for more than 40 years, and I will not give up until you receive the best possible outcome.

Statutory Rape And Date Rape Defense

Being charged with any sex crime is a traumatic event, but it can be even worse when the charges are violent in nature. You could find yourself shunned by the community and looked at as a deviant predator. These are considered among the worst criminal charges, even by those in the criminal justice system.

While the situation may appear to be stacked against you, I can assure you that you are in good hands with me. I have handled a number of sexual battery cases for clients of all ages and know what it takes to achieve a successful outcome. Whether you were falsely accused or charged based off evidence that is unconstitutional, I will pursue all available means for achieving a reduction of charges, dismissal or acquittal.
