Sexual Offences

Vancouver & Surrey Criminal Defence Lawyers

The Seriousness of Sexual Offences

While sexual-based offences can range greatly in severity, a common theme is the associated stigma. Sexual offences can be some of the most difficult charges a person can face. A conviction for a sexual offence may also follow a person for years after their sentence due to the requirement (imposed in most, but not all, cases) to register as a sex offender for 10 years to life. The conviction itself may also prevent you from travelling to certain countries, obtaining certain jobs, or even living in certain places.
