While rape and sexual assault are two of the most serious sexual offences, many others exist, including those that have been introduced recently especially in a bid to combat the targeting of children using the Internet. The possession of indecent images, for example, means that there are specific laws and sentencing guidelines that are used for cases that involve images of children.
Grooming laws have also been introduced, making it illegal to meet up with a minor with the intent of sexual activity. As well as the possibility of a custodial sentence, offenders may also be placed on the sex offenders’ register…
Fraud is criminal deception that is intended to result in financial or personal gain. There is an ever expanding list of types of fraud that a person may be accused of, and the introduction and widespread use of the Proceeds Of Crime Act (POCA) means that these cases can become particularly complex, very long winded, and may result in the seizure of assets and the freezing of cash. By instructing an experienced lawyer you can help ensure that, whether you plead guilty or not to the crime, you will receive fair treatment and not be left without anything.
The type of fraud that you are accused of will typically determine who will prosecute or investigate the case against you.
There are many drug offences that a person may be investigated, tried, and prosecuted for. While some, such as the possession of a class C drug, have relatively lenient sentences, this can quickly change if investigators and the prosecution believe that you are part of a production or distribution ring. The sentence that you receive will be dependent on many factors, including the class of the drug in question, the amount, and your level of involvement, but considerable prison sentences are possible for some of the more serious charges.
One factor that has a direct influence on the length of sentence that you receive is the class of drug in question.
If you, or a loved one, are accused of murder, then it is vital that you get experienced legal representation as soon as possible. The sentence for this offence means life in prison, and the ability to successfully argue one of the three partial defences that exist can mean the difference between a murder and manslaughter charge. Although the latter is still considered extremely serious, and carries serious penalties, it will typically mean a shorter term, when it comes to sentencing.
The prosecution must prove that the defendant set out to cause serious harm to the victim, and that their actions directly led to the death of the individual. It is not necessary to show that the intention was to kill, but to cause serious harm.
