This will ensure your interests are properly represented and that you receive fair treatment from the authorities.

What is a sexual offence?

The term sexual offence refers to a range of sexual offences including sexual harassment, rape/attempted rape, historic abuse cases and child sexual offences. Some offences carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. If you are being investigated for a sexual offence, the police should specify clearly which offence you are being accused of.


Most sexual offences are outlined by the Sexual Offences Act 2003, which consolidated previous legislation to update and strengthen the law around what constitutes a sexual offence. This act covers offences against both adults and children.


Every situation is of course different, which is why it is important to speak to a sex crime defence solicitor about your particular circumstances. At Draycott Browne, we have experience dealing with a number of different sexual offence cases, including those listed below.
