Most sexual offences were previously common law crimes, and the nature of these offences was based on what the Courts decided over the years. A fundamental change occurred in 2009 when the Scottish Government passed The Sexual Offences Act 2009. The Act has replaced many of the common law sexual charges and sets out the definition for each offence and the sentence options available to the court. Our sex crime lawyers have studied this Act meticulously and are aware of any defences available. Not all sexual crimes come under this Act, and some charges will be brought under other legislation, e.g. The Civic Government (Sc) Act. A sexual offence lawyer at Graham Walker Solicitors is an expert in this area of the law and will use all of their knowledge to help your case.

A not proven verdict is one of the most common outcomes of a sexual offence charge. This results in the same consequences as a not guilty verdict.
