Facing an allegation of sexual abuse by a child is devastating. Your arrest and release no doubt has you drained, and you already feel that dreaded stigma. You may be wondering "how can I get a fair trial?" — the police obviously believe the complainant, and the allegations were read in bail Court as if true. As discussed in this Department of Justice paper, however, allegations by children may be deliberately or recklessly false, may be unfounded due to honest mistake, or simply cannot be proven.
With the stakes so high — mandatory jail, the sex offender registry, and section-161 bans up to life (internet use, contact with children, public parks, etc.) — you need an experienced Toronto criminal lawyer. I've been fighting these cases since 1994.
Whether you're facing allegations from your granddaughter (A.W.), your daughter (F.H.), the daughter of an ex-girlfriend (M.O.), or from forty years ago (P.R.), I can help. To witness a complainant admit he had possibly targeted an innocent man, read D.L.'s Case. If you're being investigated, click here.
