What is a Sexual Offence?
If you have been accused of committing a sexual offence, the prosecution must prove that consent was not given, unless the person involved is under the age of 16. Examples of sexual offences we have dealt with include:
- Indecent images
- Sexual assault
Anyone who holds a position of trust - including a teacher, care worker, foster parent or step relative - and engages in sexual activity with a child is legally considered to have committed a sexual assault. Allegations of this nature can place considerable strain on those involved, so it is vital you seek legal advice to help defend against any accusations.
