Sexual offences can encompass a broad range of conduct, from unwanted touching of a sexual nature to sexual intercourse. At Filkow Law we understand the social stigma associated with a sexual offence can be devastating. In addition, the penalties for sexual offences are severe. In criminal law, the stakes are always high, but rarely higher than they are in a sexual offence case.
Amendments to the Criminal Code, following a number of high-profile sexual assault cases in Canada, have made defending sexual offence cases more complicated. An allegation of any type of sexual offence must be handled by experienced and skilled counsel. The lawyers at Filkow Law have extensive experience, are up to date on the law, and are highly skilled in dealing with all types of sexual allegations.
In any sexual offence case there are significant strategies, decisions, and pre-trial applications that need to be considered from the outset and throughout the life of the case. Steps can and should be taken early to protect your interests. In some cases, it is possible to prevent formal charges from being approved.
If you are being investigated or have been charged with a sexual offence, it is very important to retain a lawyer with experience in this area. Our team of lawyers at Filkow Law has the experience and skills needed to defend and protect you. Please contact us for assistance.
