What are the benefits of hiring a sexual offence solicitor?
24 Jun 2022

It is without a doubt that any offence of a sexual nature, such as rape or assault, should be taken seriously, but so too should false claims that are made by the accuser. Like all other criminal charges, sexual offence allegations can have serious and far-reaching consequences for the one facing the allegation, and it is not outside the scope of possibility that an allegation is made falsely.

Unfortunately, there is a myriad of reasons why someone may lie and falsely accuse another of a sexual assault: revenge, monetary gain, emotional leverage, attention or sympathy, and mental stability.

The damage these claims can cause to the accused can have dire emotional and financial repercussions – their entire future hangs in the balance unless they can put up a solid strategic defence against the claim. It is only through the diligent efforts of a sexual offence solicitor that one stands the best chance of having the allegations proved false and dropped.

Without the representation of an experienced sexual offence solicitor, the accused can lose their family, job, standing in the community and personal freedoms.

At ABV Solicitors, we are well aware of what is actually at stake when facing sexual allegations. As leading UK defence specialists, our dedicated sexual offence solicitor is ready to represent our clients, providing invaluable advice and assistance throughout the investigation process, including during the interview at the police station.

Even at the best of times, navigating the legal processes can be fraught with hidden dangers. It takes the professional knowledge and real-world experience of a sexual offence practitioner to avoid the legal landmines and the disastrous repercussions that can follow.

Here are great reasons why the hiring of a solicitor to defend sexual wrongdoing allegations can prove beneficial.

Top arguments in favour of seeking legal representation for a defence

There is no substitute for professional legal knowledge

It is highly unlikely that the accused can put up a solid defence against criminal allegations without expert knowledge of the law and due processes. At the end of the day, the accused may be facing a conviction and time behind bars, and a strong defence is what stands between freedom and jail time.

It is only a suitably qualified and experienced solicitor in the field of sexual offences that has the required legal expertise to defend the accused. Our sexual offence solicitors spend their days helping clients protect their rights and interests and have, therefore, amassed an inspiring wealth of experience and expert-level knowledge.

Representation when it really matters

It is not likely that the layperson has full knowledge of their rights, especially when it comes to dealing with the police, and it is most unfortunate that one cannot expect to always be dealt with fairly by the police, especially when one is accused of a crime. Our solicitor will make sure that all ethical processes are conducted to ensure our client receives a fair investigation process and there are no underhand tactics taken by the police in pursuit of a conviction.

There is no getting around proper legal representation for achieving a positive outcome when facing a criminal offence. Seeking the help, advice and guidance of a sexual offence solicitor at ABV Solicitors affords you a higher chance of a claim being proved false and dropped. Get in touch with us as soon as you have been accused of any wrongdoing.
