At Criminal Lawyers Perth we have extensive experience in defending allegations of sexual abuse alleged to have happened years and sometimes decades in the past.

We take sexual abuse cases very seriously for both the alleged victim and alleged offender - our clients.

Theses cases are however, not without their problems.

For example, when charged with acts of sexual abuse said to have happened years into the past, the accused can rarely remember details of where he was let alone what he was doing at the time. The facts that alleged victims also find it difficult to pin point exact dates and times means of when they say they were sexually abused mean that when the police allege the facts they often set out a range of dates.

Another problem is the way a person accused of sexual abuse are treated - the immediate and often heard sentiment is that "if the police have charged him he must be guilty."

At Criminal Lawyers Perth we are alive to the difficulties and problems associated with prosecuting and defending allegations of sexual abuse.
