Allegations of sexual offences are very serious. They have the potential to do irreparable harm to those who are wrongly or falsely accused or convicted, as well as their families.

Defending Against Sexual Crime Allegations in Scotland

The Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 sets out prohibited sexual conduct. These include sexual crimes relating to non-consenting sexual conduct, such as rape and sexual assault, and sexual offences involving children, vulnerable adults or where the accused holds a position of trust. Sexual offences are some of the most serious under criminal law and allegations of any prohibited sexual conduct will be fully investigated by the police and prosecuting authorities.

In all criminal law matters, the accused is presumed innocent and it is for the prosecution to prove that an offence has been committed. Unfortunately, sexual offence cases are particularly complex, raising many evidential issues that require forensic examination by the defence.

The difference between acquittal or conviction in sexual offence cases often rests on how well the defence is conducted. At Hunter & Robertson, our specialist sexual offences defence lawyers have vast experience defending clients accused of sexual crimes. They take a proactive and strategic approach, ensuring that our clients’ rights are protected while testing the prosecution’s case to the limits.
