Anyone can suddenly find themselves on the wrong side of false sex allegation and in need of a specialist sexual offence solicitor.
We recognise that being falsely accused of a crime of this nature, be it either malicious or misguided, will undoubtedly be a distressing experience that can cause great anxiety for a suspect. Given that such allegations can have potentially devastating consequences for an accused and their family, it is imperative you act immediately to get the best possible outcome.
Our team have an unparalleled level of success in defending our clients when the police, CPS or other organisations such as employers are involved.
What Impact Can False Sexual Offence Allegations Have?
Facing false sexual offence allegations is likely to be devastating to both the accused and their family, be it either malicious or misguided. Reputations can be ruined and lives can be devastated as a result. Convictions for rape, or serious sexual assault result in very lengthy custodial sentences.
The emotional impact can be huge but it can also have a direct impact on your day-to-day life, your job, and your ability to travel. In addition, false sex allegations can also affect your right to spend time with your child. Cases should be dealt with robustly and quickly; the accused should feel confident that the Police will spend as long collating evidence in support of the defence as they will in obtaining evidence to support a charge. However, in our experience this is rarely the case.
