If you are facing allegations of sexual assault, you undoubtedly have questions about what to do and whether you should speak to a criminal defence lawyer. Barrie’s David Wilcox has been providing trusted legal representation to people charged with criminal offences including sexual assault since 1987. His advice is that a sexual assault allegation must be taken seriously, regardless of whether you think the allegation has merit. Mere accusations – even those that prove to be false – have the potential to seriously damage your reputation. A sexual assault conviction is extremely serious and can result in a lengthy jail sentence in addition to destroying relationships, job prospects, housing options, and your ability to travel.
