Sexual Offences

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is a serious sexual offence, carrying a varied range of sentences. If you have been accused of sexual assault, it is important that you have representation from sexual offence solicitor who has experience in this area of criminal law. One who can correctly identify any defences and/or mitigating factors in your case. Then use these to get an improved outcome.

What Happens When You Are Accused Of Sexual Assault

Depending on the seriousness of the assault, you may be summarily tried (without a trial by jury under common law at the crown court).  In this scenario the magistrate’s court’s sentencing powers are restricted.  However, if you are convicted under indictment (trial by jury) the maximum prison term is 10 years imprisonment. It is therefore really important that you have experienced and competent representation from the beginning. This includes when you are arrested and questioned about the offence. Everyone is entitled to free representation by a solicitor of their choice whilst they are being questioned in a police station. So call us now if you need help.
