Possible sexual assault defences
Every case is different. That’s why Me Benoît will thoroughly analyze yours.
Credibility is often the determining factor. He will put his skills to use cross-examining witnesses and develop a chart to identify inconsistencies and weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
When a sexual offence case involves a police search, he will scrutinize police actions to determine if the evidence obtained can be excluded.
Sexual assault sentences
In most cases, the court will sentence the accused to a detention period in the event of a conviction for sexual offences. For many sexual offences, the law provides for a minimum detention sentence. An individual found guilty of one of these offences will be added to the Sex Offender Registry for a minimum of 10 years. This register imposes obligations that, if not followed, lead to new charges. For most sexual offences, the law excludes the possibility of applying for an exoneration or probation (detention sentence served in the community).
