Ontario Child Sex Crimes Defence Lawyers
The most stigmatizing charge under the Criminal Code is an allegation of a sexual assault against a child. Many lawyers are uncomfortable defending such charges given the subject matter. However, at Hicks Adams, we have extensive experience successfully defending such allegations against our clients.
There can be many reasons why a child makes false allegations against an adult family member or an adult stranger. It requires a lawyer with skill and confidence to delicately challenge the assertions of a child, and to explore the reasons they be inventing the charges.
Should you be convicted of such charges, you will be faced with sex offender registration on two registries: the provincial and federal registry of sex offenders. Being on these registries may limit career options and make your life extremely difficult for a long period of time.
At the law firm of Hicks Adams, our lawyers have more than a century of combined experience that we are prepared to put to work defending you. Our experience and our positive success rate in these challenging cases will give you confidence that your sex assault case is in the right hands.
