False sexual offence allegations and top reasons to contact our sexual offence solicitor
14 Jun 2023

It is something that most people have read about but, luckily, have never experienced; being falsely accused of sexual assault or rape.

Being falsely accused of a sexual offence can be a harrowing experience. The impact on your personal and professional life can be devastating, and while it is tempting to assert your innocence, it is rarely the best option.

If you find yourself in this situation, it’s vital to seek legal advice from a solicitor who specialises in sexual offences as soon as possible.

This is why it is best to contact our team at ABV Solicitors. Our sexual offence solicitor can defend your legal rights, and we will fight to ensure that you have a fair trial and defence.

So, here are 5 top reasons why you should contact our sexual offence solicitor if you have been falsely accused of sexual assault.

To understand the charges against you

You need to understand in the first instance that these accusations are not mild; they are extremely serious, and if you are not properly represented, you may be found guilty, which will have an intensely negative impact on your life.

Our sexual offence solicitor can explain the charges against you and what they mean. This will help you to understand the severity of the accusations and the potential consequences if you are convicted. They can also help you to understand the legal process, including what to expect during the trial, should it go that far.

To protect your rights

Our solicitor can help you to understand your legal rights, including your right to remain silent, your right to legal representation, and your right to a fair trial. They can ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process and that you are not unfairly treated by the police or the court.

To provide legal representation

Of course, our team can provide legal representation during the trial, including cross-examining witnesses and presenting evidence on your behalf. They can also challenge the evidence presented by the prosecution and ensure that your side of the story is heard.

To advise on plea bargaining

If the evidence against you is very solid, then our solicitor can advise you on whether to accept a plea bargain. This is a negotiation between your solicitor and the prosecution; in simple terms, you will agree to plead guilty to a charge in exchange for a more minor sentence. Our team can also advise you on whether a plea bargain is right for your case and, if so, negotiate on your behalf.

To protect your reputation

Being falsely accused of a sexual offence can have a disastrous impact on your reputation, and so our solicitors can help you to protect your reputation by ensuring that the trial is conducted in a fair, impartial manner and by challenging any false or misleading evidence presented by the prosecution. They can also help you to clear your name after the trial by advising you on how to deal with the media and by taking legal action against those who have defamed you.
