Sexual Offence Lawyers Brisbane & Gold Coast
What are Sexual Offences?
Sexual offences are treated particularly seriously under Queensland law and they all attract a maximum penalty of imprisonment if you are found guilty. For some of the offences contained below, the maximum penalty is a term of life imprisonment. The maximum penalties available emphasise how seriously the law treat these offences. If you have been charged with a sexual offence it is imperative that you obtain expert legal advice as soon as possible.
Sexual Offences are a very broad category of criminal law. These types of offences are largely governed by Part 5 of the Queensland Criminal Code. These types of offences are treated very, very seriously by Queensland Courts and invariably they attract maximum penalties of imprisonment.
The time to get legal advice in relation to these types of offences is when you believe you may be under investigation or very soon after you have been charged.
These offences are very serious and complex. Under this category, there are many offences, some of which may be used in conjunction with each other against you.
Obviously, this is very difficult to assess without understanding the circumstances of the charges or potential charges against you. What we can say though, is that these charges can become more serious the longer you delay seeking legal help. Effective criminal defence will ensure that any investigations that have been undertaken were lawful and that any future investigations only occur with the involvement of your legal team.
