Sexual Offences in Calgary
Sexual offences/assaults have become increasingly prevalent in the city of Calgary and its surrounding area. While the public often consider a sexual assault to be synonymous with a rape, such is not always the case. A sexual assault is defined as a non-consensual application of force that is sexual in nature.
Our Court of Appeal has recently stated that a sexual assault covers a wide range of prohibited actions from a stolen kiss to the worst forms of human degradation. With the large variation in charges for this subject, our sexual offence lawyers have years of experience to best help you.
While the definition of the sexual offence is extremely broad, the consequences that flow from such prosecutions are severe. This is on account of the many mandatory minimum sentences that govern these criminal code offences. While the Crown often seeks incarceration, our clients also must be cognizant of the ancillary orders that will also flow from a conviction.
The most significant of said orders involves being designated pursuant to the Sex Offender Information Registration Act. Offenders are placed on the Registry for durations varying from 10 years to life. Individuals listed on the Registry are required to keep up to date with respect to their current living arrangements and instills reporting requirements.
