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 assault cases, and who can expertly defend you.
Contact Sicotte & Sandhu today and have the best legal defence team in British Columbia proactively devise a strategy that best protects you and your rights.
Sexual Assault Charges
The government of British Columbia 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 Sicotte & Sandhu 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.
