Sexual Assault and Related Offences

Sex Crimes Defences

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

  • Incarceration (jail)
  • Being flagged for 20 years or more on the Sex Offender Registry
  • 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 Canadian citizen, your residency in Canada may be in jeopardy, your ability to
    apply for citizenship may be affected, as will your ability to sponsor family members to come to

At Muenz Criminal Law, we provide solid legal representation and support for individuals facing the trauma of being accused of sexual assault.

Have Your Legal Questions Answered

At Muenz Criminal Law, we understand that many clients charged with sexual offences aren't aware of how the legal process works, or what their rights are. We will 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, we 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.
