There are a great variety of sexual offences ranging from sexual touching, sexual interference, sexual assault and more. Beyond resulting in a serious criminal record, offences of a sexual nature carry great stigma and involve mandatory registration in a national sex offender registry as well as DNA orders. Sexual offences also attract mandatory minimum sentences which can result in significant time in custody regardless of your circumstances or the circumstances of the offence. Currently, there is also intense media scrutiny and significant pressure on Crown and the judiciary with regard to these matters. The successful defence of sexual offences requires experienced counsel with the ability to adapt their cross-examination depending on the unique circumstances of any given case. For instance, aggressive cross-examination of a complainant may be an effective formula in one case and completely backfire in another. Our experienced lawyers know which approach will best suit the particular needs of your case.
