Sexual Offences

Sexual Offences

If you have been accused of sexual assault or any other sexual offences, your present life can be greatly disrupted, and the impact on your future could be enormous. A conviction could mean a lengthy prison sentence, and your reputation stands to be tarnished forever. People accused of sexual assault are often assumed by the general public to be guilty, and the stigmatism attached to such an assumption can severely hurt the accused’s future prospects.

However, the accused do have rights, and a knowledgeable criminal defence lawyer can help protect those rights. If sexual assault charges, or any other sex offence charges, have been laid on you or a person you know, act now. You need a criminal lawyer who understands your side of the story, has experience dealing with sexual offences, and who can expertly defend you.

Contact Jaswal & Krueger today and get in touch with an experienced criminal defence lawyer to start proactively devising a strategy that best protects you and your rights.

Sexual Assault Charges

The Criminal Code of Canada defines sexual assault as any sexual contact that occurs without both people’s consent. It includes everything from sexual contact to sexual intercourse and can take place anywhere, including your home or public areas. It includes sexual contact between married couples or people in a relationship.

We can help defend you against a range of accusations, including:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault (including aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault with a weapon)
  • Sexual interference
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Invitation to sexual touching
  • Making, possessing, or distributing child pornography

If you have been accused or charged with any of the above, you need Jaswal & Krueger to organize a coordinated defence to help protect you against potentially lifelong effects. We understand the severity of the matter at hand. Being found guilty in a criminal court of an offence deemed to be sexual in nature may mean having to register as a sex offender under the Sexual Offender Information Registration Act.

Phone or email us today; doing so may turn out to be the most important decision you ever make.

Sexual Assault Defences

The team at Jaswal & Krueger has the relevant experience to expertly examine every facet of the case against you and determine the best course of action for your defence.

Some of the strategies we have used to defend our clients in the past include:

  • Questioning consent: We will examine the details of your case carefully to determine whether consent could be a viable defence. Crown counsel needs to prove that any sexual contact was non-consentual at the time, rather than a reinterpretation of it being non-consentual after the fact. Consent as a defence cannot be used is certain situations though, such as if the alleged victim was underage, or if a relationship of power or coercion were used.

  • Challenging evidence: Evidence is only admissible in court if the rights of our clients were not violated in its collection. Challenging the collection methods of evidence can be useful in having it thrown out of court.

  • Challenging identification: A witness must be certain when identifying a suspect in order to place them at the scene of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. However, witnesses are often mistaken in the process of identifying someone, so the possibility exists of overcoming identification evidence with the help of DNA samples or a good alibi.

  • Questioning a witness’s credibility: Effectively calling into question the reliability or credibility of a witness by challenging their testimony is a proven method that can lead the court to reject the evidence of a complainant outright or find that defence evidence should be preferred.
