Sex Crimes Defences

The consequences of pleading guilty or being found guilty of a sexual assault go beyond a criminal record. They may include:

  • The loss of your job
  • Difficulty getting custody of or access to your children
  • Restrictions on travel and career opportunities

If you are not a citizen, they may affect your residency, citizenship process, and ability to sponsor family.

Muenz Law Office provides solid legal representation and support for individuals throughout Calgary, Alberta charged with sexual assault offences.

Have Your Legal Questions Answered

My name is Rick Muenz, criminal defence lawyer. I understand that many clients charged with sexual offences aren't aware of how the legal process works, or what their rights are. I can help you answer your most urgent questions, such as:

  • Am I going to jail?
  • Will I have to register as a sex offender?
  • What will happen to my family and my reputation?
  • Will I have to tell my employer or my professional association?
  • When can I tell my side of the story?

Building Your Defence

In order to answer your questions, I will discuss a number of topics with you, including:

  • The evidence against you: Your case may depend on evidence from witnesses, from electronic sources, or from your own statements. We'll talk about how it was obtained and whether it can be used against you.
  • Aggravating factors: These include the use of weapons, or a victim who is a minor or has suffered bodily harm. If you were in a position of trust (such as a teacher, doctor or nursing home attendant) your situation is also considered more serious.
  • Possibilities if pleading guilty: There may be ways to minimize your sentence if you plead guilty. These may include counselling or other treatment.

If you are required to enter the Sex Offender Registry, additional consequences include restrictions on your movements even within the country.
