Sexual offence charges can be among the most emotionally charged cases. Simply being charged with an offence can have devastating consequences on a person’s life. Often, great pressure is brought to bear on a complainant by his or her family or the police. In many cases, the allegations are exaggerated and statements misinterpreted.
Today, some sexual offences carry a jail sentence as a minimum. Further, a convicted person’s name could be added to the National Sex Offender Registry.
It is important to call us prior to meeting with the police, or even contemplating speaking with anyone about these types of allegations.
