Sex Offences – We are highly experienced in dealing with all types of sexual offences. We have acted in many high-profile sex offence cases. In recent years, cultural shifts have meant that prosecutions for sexual offences are now much more common. Globally the age of “Me Too” has engendered a climate of moral panic in which innocent persons are more likely to be prosecuted for sexual offences based on the questionable evidence of a single complainant.
The penalties for sexual offending have been increasing in recent years. The offence of Sexual Penetration Without Consent, otherwise known as ‘rape’ carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment. If the offence occurs in the course of a home burglary, the court must impose at least 10 years imprisonment.
