Sexual offences are defined in Part V, Chapter XXXI of The Criminal Code and encompass a wide range of offences against the person.
Being charged with a sexual offence is a very serious matter for many reasons and particularly as there is a possibility of imprisonment if you are found guilty.
Legal representation should be sought at the earliest opportunity before taking part in a police interview as in most cases we will advise clients to politely decline taking part in a police interview.
This is because any admissions made by you in a recorded police interview may be used against you in court. During a police interview you may inadvertently provide information to the police that the prosecution would otherwise have to prove to secure a conviction against you.
