Sexual Assault Defence Lawyer
Ottawa Sexual Assault Defence Lawyer • Ontario Sexual Assault Defence Lawyer
Allegations of a sexual offence carry a huge societal stigma, ever increasing highly complex rules of trial evidence, and the risk of statutory stigmatization through both federal and provincial sexual offender registries in addition to significant mandatory minimum terms of imprisonment.
Sexual offence charges can be the most complex of any offences to defend because of the highly statutory rules of evidence incorporated into the Criminal Code which must be navigated to present crucial defence evidence within the strictures imposed by Parliament, the scientific evidence that must be considered, and the overall statutory scheme.
