Sexual Assault and Other Sexual Offences including Rape Charges
Sexual assault and other allegations involving sex crimes can result in serious consequences that can follow a person for the rest of his or her life. As an experienced defence lawyer who has represented hundreds of people charged with sexual offences in Toronto and throughout Ontario, David G. Bayliss understands his clients’ worries and fears, and he is dedicated to providing each of them with a strong defence.
Shock and disbelief are the most common reactions of a person accused of a sex offence. At a time like this, it is important to turn to an experienced Toronto criminal defence lawyer with a proven record of success.
While every person has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, in cases involving sexual offences, a bias against the defendant is usually present from the moment of the accusation. A false allegation of a crime that is sexual in nature has the very real potential to destroy one’s career, even where the falsity of the allegation has been demonstrated in court.
David G. Bayliss Professional Corporation has successfully defended hundreds of people facing devastating sex charges, including:
- Sexual assault/rape
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Sexual interference with a minor
- Sexual exploitation
- Internet luring and other computer crimes
- Possession of child pornography
Obtaining bail following a charge for a sexual offence can be difficult in some Ontario jurisdictions. When granted, the bail release will often confine the defendant to his or her own home. A savvy and experienced Toronto defence lawyer is essential to prevent this from occurring.
