Dealing with a sexual offence allegation with ABV Solicitors
17 Aug 2022

Here at ABV Solicitors we are a criminal defence firm of solicitors, defending allegations of serious crime, particularly sexual offences. We have been recognised as one of the best law firms of 2022 and we have extensive experience in dealing with sexual offences including rape, sexual assault, sexual exploitation and grooming, the distribution of indecent images of children and child abuse. We deal with sexual offences on a daily basis and our sexual offence solicitor has dealt with some of the most high-profile cases in the country. If you or anyone you know requires professional advice regarding a sexual offence, it is important that you contact us immediately so that we can delegate a sexual offence solicitor for you from the outset.

The importance of legal representation

If you are concerned that a sexual offence accusation may be made against you, then it is important that you contact us as early as possible so that we can advise as to how you should proceed. If you have been placed under arrest or called in for questioning it is also important that you have our assistance and representation, so that you do not implicate yourself further in any way. We will take a proactive approach to try and ease the process for you. We will liaise with the police from an early stage and make representations to try and dissuade them from prosecuting, in the hope that no further action will be taken against you. This may be possible for minor sexual offences, however, most sexual offences are dealt with severely and, therefore, with expert legal representation from our solicitors early on you can help reduce the implications that this may have for you.

It is important to understand that a sexual offence is a serious criminal offence and it can have major impact on your life, as well as the lives of your friends, family and loved ones. Being accused of a serious sexual offence can be a terrifying experience and if you have found yourself in that position, it is vital that you seek immediate professional advice from our sexual offence solicitor, who is experienced in all types of sexual offence cases. We deal with different types of rape, from stranger rape to date rape, sexual assault and grooming of children and we also deal with historic abuse which can go back 30 years or longer depending on your individual situation.

The process from the point of arrest to your case going to trial can be long and take months, sometimes even years, until you reach a final conclusion. If your case does proceed to trial then you will be represented by our experienced sexual offence solicitor and we will instruct a barrister from the independent Bar where necessary if your case is serious and complex. We will use our knowledge and extensive experience to decide how best to proceed with your case and we will build a defence of the highest standard to help achieve the best possible outcome for you. Speak to us today and let us help you through this difficult time and reach a positive conclusion for you and your loved ones.
