There can be few things more distressing than being falsely accused of a sexual offence or sexual offences. The outcome if the allegation is proved can be disastrous, including being placed on the Sex Offenders Register, loss of employment and reputation, the break up of the family and potentially a lengthy spell in prison.
Allegations of sexual offences are very easy to make but can be tough to disprove without specialist help. They can be made for a wide variety of reasons, for example, due to the accuser later regretting a particular sexual encounter or because they wrongly believe they have been sexually assaulted following some form of counseling for an unrelated matter.
Allegations of sexual offences including sexual assault and rape very often come down to one person’s word against another’s and require painstaking preparation and careful and skilled advocacy and cross examination in court.
