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.
