Sex Offences – It is Important to Get the Best Advice

It is trite to say that an allegation of a sexual offence is the easiest allegation to make and the hardest to disprove.

There are complicated laws around evidence and admissibility in relation to sexual offences, particularly where it concerns children and other vulnerable witnesses. The removal of committal hearings as the norm in Queensland has made it particularly difficult to ensure defendants get a fair trial. Many firms don’t bother with this, giving up an important opportunity.

Justin Sibley has worked in this area on both sides, as an investigator in the Child and Sexual Assault Investigation Unit, and as a Defence Barrister and Solicitor. He knows the difficulties you face. He has coal face trial experience, ensuring you get the best representation possible.

Assault Charges

These can range from common assaults to GBH and wounding. Justin Sibley has worked on all manner of assaults including glassings, GBHs over a pool game, self defence cases and matters where provocation has been a key factor leading to acquittal. Our team have defended many ‘he said she said’ cases, often resulting in acquittals and costs being awarded for our clients.

Depending on the nature of the offence, the matter might be dealt with in the Magistrates Court. We will explain the advantages and disadvantages of both, and ensure you have the best advice to make a fully informed decision.

Whether you have been charged, or are under investigation, you ought to get advice now from a criminal lawyer with extensive experience in law enforcement and advocacy. Our team appear in Caboolture, Brisbane, Ipswich, Richlands, Southport, Maroochydore, Wynnum, Sandgate, Pine Rivers and elsewhere throughout Queensland.
