How to deal with a sexual offence allegation
17 Nov 2021

Sexual offences are sensitive and complicated matters to find yourself involved in.

If you have been involved in a sexual offence allegation we understand that this is a traumatic situation. But it is important that as soon as you realise you have carried out a criminal offence or you have been arrested or called in for questioning with respect to a sexual offence, you need to contact us here at ABV Solicitors before you speak to anyone else. It is important that you do not involve anyone in the matter, even your closest family or friends, because this may also implicate them in the situation later on in the process. You need to keep calm and contact us at ABV Solicitors.

The role of our sexual offence solicitor

We are a leading firm of criminal solicitors here in the UK and we have been recognised for our vast knowledge of the criminal legal system. We provide a 24-hour helpline so you can contact us in an emergency situation whichever day of the week or time of the day it may be. By contacting us immediately we will be able to delegate a sexual offence solicitor who will deal with your case from beginning to end. Without legal representation and assistance it is very easy for you to implicate yourself and complicate the matter further. At ABV Solicitors we will make sure that your sexual offence solicitor is present from the initial interview or questioning by the police or local authorities throughout the process, until they represent you in court to achieve the best possible outcome for you in your circumstances.

The effects of a sexual offence allegation

The impact of a sexual offence allegation can be devastating for all aspects of your life and the lives of those around you. It can destroy family relationships and lead to the breakdown of family ties. It can destroy friendships and social reputation and for those who are employed or involved in a profession it may cost your job and ruin all prospects of a career in the future.

The nature of your case will depend on the allegation itself. Sexual offences are a very broad term with multiple offences being listed underneath this section of criminal law, with many offences overlapping each other. It can be difficult to differentiate crimes however, as each one is addressed with a varying degree of severity. It is important that we are aware from the very beginning exactly what it is that you are being accused of, so that your sexual offence solicitor can put together a strong defence for you accordingly.

Are you a victim of a sexual offence?

If you have been the victim of a sexual offence or sexual activity has occurred without your consent then it is important that you contact the police immediately and that you also contact us here at ABV Solicitors to speak to a sexual offence solicitor. We will deal with your case sensitively and confidentially and you can rest assured that we have your best interests in mind. We will use our knowledge and expertise to obtain justice for you and to ensure that your perpetrator is unable to carry out such crimes against anyone else in the future.
