Sex Offence Lawyers – Melbourne
Have you been or are you about to be charged or interviewed in relation to a sexual offence?
You need to speak to a sexual offences lawyer that understands this area of law; a lawyer that has experience running both Magistrate contested hearings and County Court jury trials. At the Dribbin & Brown criminal law firm we only deal with crime and a significant portion of our practice relates to representing people charged with sex offences. We have offices in Melbourne, Ringwood, Dandenong, Frankston and Moorabbin and we appear at the Magistrates, County and Supreme Courts proximate to these localities regularly. It is important that you understand that the laws of evidence relating to the prosecution of sexual offences are very complicated and in many circumstances time limits apply. Matters will often move very quickly through the Court system. To this end these matters are usually conducted in Melbourne in a special list convened to handle sex offence cases only. No other offence is conducted in this way. If you have been charged with a sexual offence it is vital that you obtain legal advice as soon as possible. We understand that these matters are embarrassing and often very personal but ultimately more than any other criminal offence it is important to seek professional sex offence lawyer advice early.
We have defended hundreds of cases involving sex offences. If police intend on interviewing you regarding a sexual offence it is absolutely critical that you seek legal advice prior to the interview. Considering whether to make comment on your record of interview is not something that you should work out on your own. There are serious repercussions flowing from how you approach your interview. This choice should only be made after seeking advice from a practitioner that specialises in defending sex charges. The things you say during your interview can be used against you in court. What you put on the record could be the difference between being found guilty or not guilty. As is always the case but particularly so in regard to sex offences, preparation is vital to ensure the best possible outcome.
