In all criminal proceedings you are innocent until proven guilty. The burden rests with the Prosecution to prove your guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

Are You Facing Allegations of Historical Sex Abuse?

Historic allegations can be extremely difficult and complex, particularly when alleged incidents happened 20 to 30 years ago. Memories will have faded, contemporary evidence will likely have been destroyed and key witnesses may no longer be available.  Complainants can be allowed significant latitude by the Police and Prosecuting authorities in terms of the detail of the alleged incidents and when the incidents took place.

In order to successfully defend allegations of sex abuse we are meticulous in our preparation. We are rigorous and relentless in our approach to defending the allegations from the start. We analyse and scrutinise every detail of the prosecution case including the details of what has been alleged and any evidence that the Crown intend to use to prove their case.

Allegations of historic sexual offending are ever-increasing and often these can be reports of alleged abuse over a number of years within a family or marriage, at a school/club or in residential care homes. The allegation could be from over 30 years ago, yet the Police and Prosecution often proceed with the complaint and bring the case to Trial.

It is now widely regarded by the Prosecution that delay in reporting is not evidence of a false allegation and more and more cases are now being prosecuted. Historic allegations arising out of alleged sexual incidents from the distant past are devastating for the person accused and their families. This can be made worse if the accused’s name and address are published in Newspapers or Online when the case comes to Court.
