In Canada, we no longer have the charge of rape. Instead, we have offences such as sexual assault, sexual interference, and sexual exploitation. Being charged with any offence involving sexual assault, child pornography, or internet luring can have a devastating impact on one’s life and reputation.

Why do I need a criminal defence lawyer?
Sexual assault charges are sensitive and complex, both for the accused and the Crown. Charges vary in scope from offcolour comments made by staff in corporate office environments, to serious and predatory criminal offences committed by violent individuals. Regardless of the setting or severity of the accusation, sexual assault lawyers are needed to navigate Canada’s complex legal systems and ensure that your Charter are protected throughout your case.
Sexual assault cases can be based on allegations arising from historical contexts (i.e. ones which allegedly occurred many years ago), domestic or interpersonal relations, or instances of misidentification. Many cases are brought to court as a result of false confessions made when the accused failed to secure a sexual assault lawyer to moderate the investigation process; these instances can cause irreparable damage to one‘s reputation within the community, and consume Crown resources unnecessarily, both of which can be avoided by selecting a qualified sexual assault lawyer in Toronto.
