What is Child Grooming ?
Child Grooming occurs when an adult, communicates with a child under 16 years and then meets or travels with the intention to meet the child to engage in Sexual Activity. The communication needn’t be sexual in nature and the Courts will consider all the factors of the case including the length of communication, the use of pseudo names, the age difference between the parties, the level of planning and sophistication, the number of people involved, the use of drugs or alcohol and the impact of any physical or mental injury to the child.
Child Grooming Offences have attracted substantial negative press coverage. Those accused, though innocent by law, are humiliated beyond repair in national newspapers. The impact of such allegations is catastrophic, requiring exceptional damage limitation planning.
Those being investigated and prosecuted will fear the wrath of the media and always be concerned about their safety and the safety of their loved ones. Whilst the Rule of Law and the Human Rights Act follow the principle of everyone being ‘innocent until proven guilty’, those accused of Child Grooming Offences will inevitably feel they are being assumed to be guilty until they prove their own innocence.
Lack of sleep, constant anxiety, sweeping depression and uncontrollable mood swings are but some of the physical symptoms you may suffer whilst battling the Charges. The impact on your well-being, your loved ones and any business you may be operating is immeasurable.
