Subjecting another person to physical contact of a sexual nature without obtaining their consent may be a sexual offence.
Sexual Assaults not only include penile intercourse, but also digital penetration (i.e. any object other than a penis) and oral sex.
A child under the age of 16 is incapable at law of giving consent to sexual intercourse or other sexual acts.
Sexual offences are considered to be very serious. As such, terms of immediate imprisonment are often ordered. We strongly urge you to contact us immediately if you have been charged with, or are under investigation in relation to, a sexual offence. We have experience in advising and representing clients with respect to a range of various types of sexual offending ranging from lower level indecent assaults involving touching, to much more serious sexual penetrations over prolonged periods of time as well as historical offences from complaints relating to incidents from decades ago.
