Police Station Representation

Often, the first step in a sexual offences prosecution is an invitation to attend a police station interview under caution. Evidence you give during this interview can be used in court, so it is important to consider carefully what you will say. Speaking to an expert sexual offences defence lawyer before going to the interview will ensure that you know your rights and that you have a clear understanding of what to expect and how to protect your position.

If you ask one of our sexual offences lawyers to represent you, we will do all we can to ensure that no charges are brought against you. We will advise you prior to the interview and attend the police station and interview with you.

Sexual Offences Defence

If you are being investigated for an alleged sexual offence or you have been charged, we can provide a strong defence. We will work proactively to secure all relevant evidence, including communications such as emails and texts, copies of medical evidence, CCTV footage and witness statements. Where necessary, we can engage experts to assist in your defence.

If the case against you is weak and we believe that there is insufficient evidence against you, we may be able to request that the case is dropped. Similarly, if there are flaws in the police investigation or your rights have been breached, for example, by a failure to follow the correct procedure, it may be possible to avoid prosecution.

If your case proceeds to court, we will provide you with the support and advice you need. We will put together the clearest possible defence on your behalf and ensure that you are represented by an expert sexual offences advocate.
