Brookwood High Student Indicted on Sexual Assault Charges
John Luke Walker, a 17-year-old from Lilburn was indicted this week in the alleged sexual assault charges of a 14-year-old girl he met at a high school party. A Gwinnett grand jury indicted Walker on one count of aggravated child molestation and one count of making false statements. Walker is being held in jail without bond.
Police allege that Walker met the girl at a party on February 17th. He took her to another house and proceeded to rape her. Walker was initially charged with one count each of felony rape, child molestation, and making false statements. He was not indicted on the rape charge, but the count of aggravated child molestation alleges that Walker had sex with the victim. The girl was 14 at the time of the incident but has since turned 15.
In cases such as this one, competent counsel with experience dealing with Georgia sex crimes are mandatory. The stigma involved with these types of cases is life-altering and will follow the young man long after the case is over, so proving his innocence is paramount. The fact that these individuals are minors certainly complicates the case. Sexual assault cases can be complicated enough, but when you add juvenile law ingredients what was a difficult case can become overwhelming to an attorney without the necessary expertise in the required fields.
The Law Firms concentrate on criminal offenses and sex crime cases. This allows giving each client the individual and aggressive legal defense that they deserve.
