Sex offences are very complex and rely on versions of events. For people who are pleading guilty there is a lot of preparation that can be done that will help to put your offending in proper context. For those pleading not guilty (which means fighting the allegations against them) Doogue + George criminal defence lawyers are a firm who run and win a lot of jury trials on sex cases. Our experience is that the key to fighting sex charges is preparation.

A sex charge has serious consequences and everything must be done properly to give you the best chance of winning your case.
Some issues in sex cases that run to trial are
(depending on the charge);
- Was there consent to what happened?
- When did they first complain and to who?
- Have they made a compensation claim?
- Can we separate the trials in relation to different complainants?
- What evidence can we lead about behaviour inconsistent with the complaint?
