Managing False Allegations
As mentioned, speed and efficiency are vital if you are to aggressively confront the allegations ahead of you. It is important that you protect yourself and plan your defence the moment you suspect you are being investigated. However, you should exercise your right to remain silent and not speak to the police about the allegations.
It is perfectly understandable to believe that if you did not do it, you have nothing to worry about and you will be found innocent of all charges. But the complexity of the matter prevents the situation from being so easy. As you navigate your way through the legal process, proactively take the following actions:
Working with an Experienced Sexual Assault Defence Lawyer is Essential
The stigma associated with a sexual assault allegation is exceptionally damaging. Due to the high probability of charges being filed if an accusation is made, we recommend retaining the services of a skilled and knowledgeable sexual assault defence lawyer. Because the courts, prosecutors, and police take allegations of sexual assault very seriously, we advise you to do the same if accused.
A conviction of this nature will usually lead to a lengthy jail term and the loss of your career. A conviction may also prevent you from obtaining employment or traveling to other countries. For example, those convicted of theft, controlled substance violations, prostitution, break and enter, human trafficking, and sexual assault among other crimes, are deemed to be inadmissible to enter the United States from Canada.
Assuming they hire the right criminal defence lawyer, a large percentage of people charged with a sexual assault or a sexual crime will be found not guilty at trial. Our skilled defence lawyers understand the intricacies and complex nature of defending and winning sexual assault cases. We are willing to spend the time to investigate any allegations made against you and we will tirelessly prepare your defence. We are committed to doing everything we possibly can to win your case within the ethical rules of the court. This can mean the difference between an acquittal and a conviction.
