An accusation of a sexual offence such as rape can have a shattering effect on everyone involved and their families. If you are convicted of rape, or another sexual offence such as indecent assault, you are likely to be sent to prison for many years. It is impossible to turn back the clock on the damage caused to your reputation and the impact on your loved ones.

Allegations of sexual crimes are easy to make but difficult to defend – particularly when it is just your word against that of your accuser. This is why it is imperative if you are suspected of such an offence to get expert legal advice straight away.
