How We Help You
1) Guide You On How To Speak To The Police
Being accused of any sex crime is a stressful and often highly intimidating experience. Especially for those who have never had little or no interaction with the police before.
The police may suggest that speaking with a lawyer makes you look guilty. That if you “have nothing to hide”, you won’t need one.
Nothing could be further from the truth. In all cases, an experienced sex crime attorney will be able to advise you on what to say to the police no matter what stage your case is at.
2) Analyse The Evidence Against You And Limit The Damage
It can be incredibly difficult to understand the strength of the case against you.
We can give you an expert review of the evidence and explain just how strong or weak it is based on extensive experience with similar cases in the past.
A general law practitioner may simply advise you to plead guilty and then try to mitigate the plea. As specialist sex crimes solicitors, we also have in-depth experience in identifying possible weaknesses in evidence. We can then start to work on drawing attention to them.
3) Collect Evidence And Build Your Case
It isn’t impossible that the police may fail to identify all of the key witnesses in a case. There may also be evidence that conflicts with the evidence already collected – if it can be found.
We can investigate to gather evidence, take statements, and locate expert witnesses to speak in your defence if their input will be beneficial.
4) Persuade The Police, CPS Or Prosecution To Drop Your Case
In some cases, it may be possible to make the police, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), or the prosecution drop your case before it reaches the court phase.
This is only possible when the available evidence means there is no realistic likelihood of you being found guilty. Our specialists know exactly how to make this clear to the relevant parties in order to get your case dropped.
5) Help You Mitigate Your Offence If You Do Plead Guilty
You can always count on us to present you with clear choices and an expert opinion as to what the best course of action will be based on the evidence against you.
In some cases, depending on the strength of that evidence, one of your available courses of action may be to plead guilty. There may also be advantages to making an early guilty plea and then mitigating any potential sentence.
The key is to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you and to get expert legal advice explaining what it really means. That’s exactly what we provide.
