The Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 (YJCEA) contains special measures designed to allow witnesses to provide pre-recorded evidence in chief.
Section 28 of the Act allows for cross and re-examination to also be pre-recorded and is revolutionising how sex crimes are prosecuted in England & Wales. As a result, your defence preparation and strategising must be frontloaded and done at the outset, within a much shorter timeframe. If this applies to you, you really cannot waste time. You must have a proactive legal team on your site from the day you know you may face allegations.
And even before the charge, you should take steps to prepare. You cannot start too early.
For more information, please see my guide to Section 28 in sex offence cases here.
My professional experience, approachability and considerable expertise means that you will be in a very safe pair of hands when it comes to your defence, and my track record is second to none. I consistently obtain favourable results for clients accused of a variety of sexual offences, and so I am well placed to support, advise and represent you in respect of your case.
