Our Criminal Solicitors possess a breadth of technical knowledge surrounding all types of sexual offences and matters surrounding consent that will provide you with the expertise required when faced with such sensitive allegations and investigation by the police.
The social stigma surrounding sex crimes is enough to mentally, emotionally and socially ruin your life, your relationships, and your ability to earn income in the future. In addition to prison time, a sex crime conviction requires you to register details about yourself on the Violent and Sex Offender Register (ViSOR).
Thus, it is of the utmost importance that you utilise every available resource to combat an allegation of sexual abuse or rape. Even one small mistake at the outset can prejudice your case to the end and affect your life forever. Draycott Browne are renowned solicitors for defending rape and attempted rape having been successful in some high profile cases in recent years.
