Sex Crimes Defence Lawyer For Calgary And Surrounding Areas

Sex crimes have a special stigma that many other crimes don't. If anybody is aware that you have been involved with any kind of sexual assault-related charge, the stigma will start from the moment you are charged. Many people will treat you as if you were guilty from the moment you are charged.

At Muenz Law Office, we will not.

What You Need To Know

The consequences of pleading guilty or being found guilty of a sexual assault go beyond a criminal record. They may be severe and may include loss of your job, difficulty getting custody of or access to your children and restrictions on travel and career opportunities. If you are not a citizen, they may affect your residency, citizenship process, and ability to sponsor family.

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

There may also be consequences for your family, which can be touched with the same stigma.

Answering Your Questions

Clients coming in to see us with sexual assault charges have a number of 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?

In order to answer your questions, our lawyer will have to 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 than if you were not.
  • Possibilities if pleading guilty: There may be ways to minimize your sentence if you plead guilty. These may include counselling or other treatment.
