It’s critical to act promptly, as waiting can result in a load of misinformation that can harm your case.
To win a sexual assault case, your defense must be more robust than the complainant’s credibility. This may involve demonstrating that the accuser had ulterior motives for pressing charges against you or falsely accusing you of a crime you didn’t commit. At Erickson Law, we work diligently to help you prepare your testimony and manage cross-examination by the Crown attorney. Our experienced sexual assault lawyer can identify if the prosecution obtained evidence against you in an unethical or illegal manner.
Know Your Legal Rights
Under Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, you have the right to remain silent after being arrested. The police are required to inform you of the reason for your arrest and your right to counsel under Sections 10(a) and 10(b), respectively. Therefore, you are not obliged to speak to an officer if you feel uncomfortable. Section 7 of the Charter safeguards your autonomy and legal rights against the government’s actions. It presumes that every individual is innocent until proven guilty, and any violation of this right by the officer can result in the trial judge excluding any evidence obtained under such circumstances.
