SEXUAL OFFENCES

SEXUAL ASSAULT AND OTHER SEXUAL OFFENCES CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.

 

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF SEXUAL OFFENCES?

Sexual Assault: where one adult touches another adult in a sexual manner or on a sexual part of the body without consent.

Sexual Interference or Sexual Touching: where an adult touches a child for a sexual purpose.

Child Pornography: making, distributing or possessing child pornography, which are depictions of children or those who appear to be under the age of 18 engaged in sexual activity, either with adults or with other children.


HOW WE CAN HELP

If you are convicted of the serious charge of sexual assault, the results can be life-changing.

If the sexual assault is on a person under 16, there is a mandatory minimum one-year jail sentence on conviction. Sentences for sexual assault can range from suspended (no jail) sentences to years or decades in jail.

Our lawyers can intercede, gather evidence, attend an interview with the police or with the Ministry of Children and Family Development (if we decide together that one is necessary or in your best interests), and if possible, make submissions to Crown Counsel and get these matters dropped before charges ever happen.
