The moment you believe you are going to be investigated for a sex crime involving a minor, it is important that you seek out an experienced and determined defence lawyer. You want to have someone by your side who will keep you informed of your case at all times and advocate fully on your behalf.
What sets Neuberger & Partners LLP apart from other law firms is the detailed, thorough and creative manner in which we develop a defence, particularly in cases involving sexual assault, sexual exploitation, Internet luring and invitation to sexual touching. We often utilize various types of experts and investigators in the defence to ensure we are protecting your rights at all times and building an effective response to the allegations. We understand the devastating effects a conviction for such a crime could have on your freedom and your future. We will do everything we can to help you avoid a conviction.
Sexual exploitation charges involve allegations of sexual acts with a youth under the age of 18. The alleged aggressor in these cases must have been in a position of trust or authority over the youth. If you have been charged with sexual exploitation, reach out to us. One of our lawyers will sit down with you, discuss the details of your case carefully and investigate all potential defences available in your situation.
A common defence in these cases is mistake of the youth’s age. If you believe you took all reasonable steps to ascertain the minor’s actual age and believed the minor to be an adult, then your defence may withstand the court’s scrutiny. We have extensive experience in this area, and we will help you evaluate all aspects of this defence and prepare you fully for trial.
Internet luring cases usually involve adults soliciting sexual acts or favours from minors in Internet chat rooms. If you ask the person’s age, and he or she says 13 or 14, but you believed the person was actually older, you will have no defence. The Criminal Code specifically provides that if the minor stated his or her age as 13 or 14, the accused is deemed to have knowledge of the age. This is why careful scrutiny and investigation of all of the available and potential evidence is important to defend you.
Most often, the evidence gathered to support charges of Internet luring will involve chat dialogues and other records obtained from a computer. We will hire forensic computer experts, Internet providers and other experts to help identify, retrieve and analyze all relevant evidence.
In a recent luring case, our hired computer experts found additional Internet chats that did not exist in the prosecution’s case. These chats were instrumental to our cross-examinations and eventually for winning the case. Learn about more of our recent case successes in cases involving sexual assault.
