Sexual Offences Solicitors

Have you been accused of a sexual offence? Is someone you know being held in a police station for questioning over a sexual allegation? Being accused of a sexual offence can be a very humiliating experience and can have far-reaching consequences for your career and reputation. We deal with these cases for clients from all walks of life. We have substantial experience as a specialist law firm. We work with leading providers within the digital forensics industry, primarily specialising in criminal defence investigations. With a comprehensive range of proven digital forensic capabilities, including mobile phone forensics, computer forensics and cell site analysis, we instruct experts on a vast range of investigations.

Society’s view of these offenders is such that the presumption of being innocent until proven guilty often seems, in reality, to be reversed.

As specialists, we can work with digital experts such as Cyfor, an agency to build your defence.We work with leading providers within the digital forensics industry, primarily specialising in criminal defence investigations with a comprehensive range of proven digital forensic capabilities, including mobile phone forensics, computer forensics and cell site analysis.

We can also work with a private investigator, if required. In some cases, private investigators may be able to uncover information and evidence not found by law enforcements officers and help solve the case. This includes using open source tools, such as searching social media sites. 

The police will interview you and attempt to build a case. The advice you receive can make a difference to the outcome of your case. Can bad advice at the police station from a non specialist help to get you charged? Sometimes, yes. You should not take chances with a non-specialist firm or lawyer. We will advise you if it is in your interest to answer no comment in the interview. 

If you believe your case is likely to have serious consequences for you now, or in the future, and you have the means to pay for this service please read more about our bespoke private fee service.

Since sexual offences are taken very seriously, you need to seek legal advice and representation from our specialist defence lawyers at JD Spicer Zeb without delay. 

Most of our work comes from repeat clients and word-of-mouth recommendations from clients and professionals, not online searches. We have been established for over 45 years.

We will analyse the evidence fully and give you an expert opinion on the strengths and weaknesses of your case. If instructed to do so, we can provide an enhanced service and prepare your defence from the outset by taking statements and gathering evidence in support of your defence. We have acted for a wide range of clients in cases where false allegations have been made. We recognise the trauma such an allegation can cause you and we only provide specialist teams to work on these cases which are supervised by partners. We are trained to identify key weaknesses in cases. The government is committed to bringing higher conviction rates for sexual offences and rape.

In the government's end-to-end rape review report on findings and actions, it is asserted "perpetrators are to be investigated and prosecuted, so that those who commit these crimes feel the full force of the law". Read our blog to find out more about its impact on rape and sexual assault cases, but we see no support for those falsely accused of this crime from the authorities so your only recourse is having the best legal team to advise you on: 

  • Building your case at the outset and limiting damage to you
  • Taking statements and securing your defence with expert reports
  • Providing a leading and premier service
  • Undertaking advance work if legal aid will not cover it
  • Mitigating your position even if you admit offences
  • Persuading the police to drop the case early 
  • Persuading the CPS prosecution to drop the case
  • When possible, securing a police caution for you

We have acted for many innocent and falsely accused clients. We will defend you with experts.

We promise to give you a clear informed opinion face to face and in writing. We will always advise you about early guilty plea options leading to a full credit sentence reduction in your case. These offences are too serious and using a very experienced solicitor and barrister can make a real difference to the outcome. We are expert sex offence lawyers similar to consultants in this area of law.

If we think we can persuade the police or CPS not to prosecute you, we will discuss the option of getting the case dropped earlier with you. The police and CPS can not proceed with cases if there is no realistic prospect of a conviction or it is not in the public interest to prosecute you. We are experts at reminding them of this fact and will fight them to point out weak cases or where our client should not be prosecuted for good reasons.

Whether you have been accused of a sexual offence, been arrested, charged, released on bail or under investigation, we can act in your defence, ensure your rights and interests are protected, and help you achieve the most favourable outcome possible in the circumstances.
