In the event that you or someone you know has been arrested under a rape accusation or you’re aware that a rape accusation has been made, our sexual offence solicitor will work fast on your behalf. Allegations of rape can only be heard in the crown court but can have devastating consequences when false, especially when the minimum sentence is life imprisonment. We will need to access all and any evidence between the parties involved so that we can argue on your behalf to our most heightened ability, leaving no room for surprises or mistakes. Our sexual offence solicitor will be completely prepared.


If you have been accused of exploiting a vulnerable party, it may seem like a lost cause to try and defend yourself, but this is not the case. In a situation like this, it is of the utmost importance that you get legal advice and defence to guide you through the process and prove your innocence. Using our knowledge and skills, we will take a deep look into the case and cover all areas of evidence and witnesses to find the best possible way of proving that the accusations are false. Exploitation of vulnerable parties can include but are not limited to children and young adults or those easily exploited for a variety of reasons.


The consequences of a grooming accusation can be detrimental to your reputation and health and have more severe repercussions, including up to 14 years imprisonment and notification requirements of the sex offenders list. As soon as the accusation is made, you will be charged and required to attend court, meaning that it is not only you who may suffer but your friends and family around you, too. Our sexual offence solicitor can support you from start to finish. It is important to note that for the varying levels of sexual offences with children, there are also varying levels of punishment.
