Rape & Sex Crime

The greatest penalty for a guilty conviction with regards to sexual assault is a life term in prison. In addition to a jail term sentence, the perpetrator will be obliged to be declared on the sex offenders register. In Scotland, only the High Court can prosecute a rape case. If convicted the implementation of a custodial sentence is unavoidable, however, with the correct input and intervention of your juridical team can mitigate the length of this sentence with skilled negotiation on your behalf when the case is presented to the crown.

All have one thing in common: they are innocent until proven guilty and we will do everything within the rules to ensure that their best interests are served. We are passionately committed to high standards of work on behalf of clients. Serious and complex cases generate huge amounts of paper, electronic data, and audio-visual recordings. Somewhere in this mountain of information will lie a grain of information that can turn a case around.
