Protect your rights – hire a sexual offence solicitor
04 January 2021
Of utmost concern to anyone accused of a sexual offence crime is protecting their individual rights. Allegations of sexual offences, whether it is of rape, child abuse or sexual grooming, have serious consequences for the individual accused. A sexual offence solicitor has all the necessary requirements – knowledge, skills and experience – to capably defend against the allegations their clients face and protect their rights.
Without the professional advice and support of an expert sexual offence solicitor, the accused will find the legal processes and law enforcement agencies more like a minefield to navigate. It is quite common for an individual placed in such a situation to be engulfed in feelings of panic, stress, anxiety and despair. Legal representation from a sexual offence solicitor at ABV Solicitors can help calm frayed nerves and provide proven strategies to establish a client’s innocence.
How can a sex offence solicitor help?
Legal representation when interviewed by the police
Many individuals feel that because they are innocent of a crime (false accusations are not unheard of), they have no need to fear the interview by the police station. We encourage individuals to reconsider talking to the police without having a law practitioner present as this places the person under suspicion in a very precarious position. To make their case, it is not uncommon for the police to ask unsuitable questions or to withhold vital information about an allegation. Solicitors for sex offences will be able to identify the questions their clients can safely answer and explain confounding legal jargon in easy-to-understand terms. They will also be able to protect their clients from unethical investigation practices.
Secure the best possible outcome for your case
Allegations of a sexual crime can destroy the future of an individual – they can lose their partner, family, home or job. And if found guilty, serve a sentence behind bars robbing them of time and in many instances, their health. Hiring the best legal help is the most reliable way to put forward a strategic defence to secure the best outcome.
Ensure you are dealt with fairly and justly
Even in cases where an individual has been falsely accused, unethical practices by law enforcement agencies used in gathering evidence can result in the innocent looking guilty.
An experienced sex offence solicitor will ensure that all the steps and processes taken by the police are fair and in accordance with the law.
We cannot stress enough that taking proactive steps in defending against an allegation of sex offence is of the utmost importance – especially the timing of hiring expert legal representation right in the initial stages of the investigation.
