Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a child abuse investigation or court case last?

The duration of a child abuse investigation or court case can vary significantly, depending on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the amount of evidence to be reviewed, the availability of witnesses, legal procedural matters, and the efficiency of the judicial system.

Generally, an investigation phase can last from a few months to over a year, especially if it involves detailed forensic analysis or multiple witnesses. Once the case moves to court, the trial length will again depend on the complexity of the case, the number of charges, and the court's schedule.

Can police tell my employer I have been accused of child abuse?

In the UK, the police have the discretion to inform your employer if you have been accused of child abuse, especially if your job involves working with children or vulnerable adults. This action is typically taken in situations where the police believe there is a potential risk to others. The decision to inform an employer is not taken lightly and is usually based on the nature and seriousness of the allegations.

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) can also make disclosures to employers regarding individuals who are under investigation for offences that might affect their suitability for certain types of work, particularly roles involving children or vulnerable adults.

However, it's important to note that such disclosures are subject to strict legal frameworks intended to balance the accused's rights with the public's protection. If you find yourself in this situation, it's crucial to seek legal advice to understand your rights and the implications of any police disclosure to your employer.

Will I go to prison if I am convicted of child abuse?

If convicted of child abuse in the UK, the possibility of imprisonment depends on several factors, including the nature and severity of the abuse, the circumstances surrounding the case, and your previous criminal history. Child abuse is a severe offence, and the courts treat such cases with the utmost gravity.

The sentencing for child abuse can vary widely. It may range from community orders for less severe cases to lengthy prison sentences for more serious offences. Factors such as the age of the child, the duration of the abuse, and the impact on the victim are heavily considered in sentencing decisions.

Will I get my phone or computer back if I have been arrested for child abuse?

If your phone or computer has been confiscated by the police as part of an investigation into child abuse allegations, whether and when you get these items back depends on several factors. The police may retain your electronic devices for the duration of the investigation and any subsequent legal proceedings if they are considered potential evidence.

The length of time for which the police can hold your belongings depends on the progress of the investigation. This can vary, sometimes lasting several months, especially if forensic examinations are required to retrieve and analyse data.

Once the investigation is concluded and if no charges are brought against you, or if you are found not guilty, your belongings should generally be returned to you unless they are considered contraband or are subject to a court order.
