Get support and advice from specialist sexual assault solicitors

Dealing with allegations of sexual assault calls for specialist assistance – someone who can provide not only highly relevant legal expertise, but also confidential guidance and support. Our sexual assault solicitors do exactly that.

That’s because there is a huge stigma attached to sexual assault allegations. Even those with no substance can harm your personal and professional life, your relationships, and your mental health.

The most important thing is to secure that relevant legal support and advice as soon as possible. Building the best defence requires specialist expertise and a proactive attitude to listening to you and gathering evidence – not letting the police be your guide.

Reach out to us at enquiries@parnellandpeel.co.uk for a completely confidential chat about your situation. Let’s see how we can start to work to get you the best possible outcome.

How Our Sexual Assault Lawyers Support You

Even if the police say they want to interview you on a voluntary basis, it is best not to answer any questions until you have a specialist sexual assault lawyer present. This is true even if the police say arranging for legal representation will make you look guilty.

That’s not how it works. A legal expert will simply ensure that you are in control of the situation and the facts are communicated to you clearly and correctly. Our specialists in sexual assault allegations can help you:

1) Defend Yourself Proactively

The best strategy is often to engage with the police officers working on your case early on. This can mean researching and drawing their attention to evidence that supports your defence, such as:

  • Any digital trail – such as text or WhatsApp messages or evidence on social media or on your mobile phone.
  • Video evidence – such as CCTV footage or images on social media or your phone.
  • Timelines – showing who said what and when and where people were at any given time.
  • Witness testimonies – from those who might support your defence.
  • Relevant previous information – that may illuminate why an allegation may have been made.

One of the key responsibilities of investigators in these matters is to judge the chances of a positive conviction. If evidence builds up showing this to be less likely, it may be possible to gently approach the subject of avoiding trial altogether.

This might be done through a “representation”, a letter to the officer in charge of the investigation pointing out the weaknesses in the evidence.

2) Get Support And Advice

Act early to make sure you have the expert legal advice and the discreet, sympathetic support you need:

  • In the police station – during interviews and re-interviews, including before you are charged and when you are being interviewed voluntarily.
  • At Crown Court – we can provide the representation you need at Crown Court level, should your case go that far.

What Constitutes Sexual Assault?

Sexual assault is defined in law in England and Wales in the Sexual Offences Act 2003. It says that sexual assault involves a person:

  • Intentionally touching someone else in a sexual manner
  • Touching with any part of the body or an object
  • Not reasonably believing the other person consents to this touch

It’s important to note that “rape” and “sexual assault” are counted as different things under Welsh and English law. Some people are more comfortable saying “sexual assault” though, meaning there can be an overlap in the way they are used.

However, if the police talk to you about a sexual offence allegation, they must tell you exactly what you are being accused of.
What types of sexual assault are there?

The definition above can cover a wide range of specific acts. These might include kissing or touching any part of someone’s body or their clothing in a sexual manner or for sexual pleasure. It also includes attempting to persuade or pressure them to perform a sexual act, including on themselves or on somebody else.

In addition, it covers a person “causing” another person – usually through coercion or pressure – to engage in sexual activity without their consent. This might not actually involve physically touching them, but is still counted an offence on par with other types of sexual assaults.

“Hi Abdul, I would like to thank you and your team for looking after me after been charged with Drink Driving, from the initial contact with Nancy to speaking to you and especially Keiran who represented me in court, who I can’t thank enough. When I thought there was no hope you and Kieran sorted what I thought was a hopeless case. I would strongly recommend you to anyone in the same position. Again thank you to you and your team.”

Nigel Murray

“My family and friends were sceptical about using Solicitors after I was stopped for drink driving. Parnell & Peel Solicitors were willing take a case on that others told was hopeless. I am astounded by Abdul and his teams brilliance in helping me to avoid conviction. If you have been stopped for drink driving do not hesitate to use Parnell & Peel Solicitors.”

Parnell and Peel what can you say. Abdul was amazing meticulous and professional throughout. Great customer care and friendly team. Everything was outstanding. Fantastic team, fantastic result.”

Alina Arten

“It was the worse time of my life. My nephew had made allegation against me. I contacted Parnell and Peel, and from the very first conversation with Abdul, I knew he was the one to help me. Parnell used many experts including psychological ones to show that my nephew was not telling the truth, old phone records were also used to provide me with a defence. I was relieved when the Prosecution dropped by Case. I will forever be grateful to the team at Parnell.”

RT

“Thank You, Thank you. I believed my life had ended. I was falsely accused of Rape and I didn’t know where to turn to. I contacted many solicitors, until deciding upon Parnell. It’s the best decision I ever made. The Prosecution offered no evidence, during the Crown Court hearing.”

MS

“Parnell and Peel are magnificent, not only are they excellent at their jobs, but they are humans. Abdul was truly amazing, as was the whole team. The thought of prison for something I did not do was truly terrifying. Abduls amazing eye for detail saved the day. The prosecution had noty followed the correct procedure, and the witnesses had lied on oath. I was found not guilty”

JW

Attentive, inquisitive, and fantastic in Court, both Abdul and John wo represented me during my trial were excellent. Found not guilty of historic allegations.”
