False Rape Accusations

If you are the victim of False Rape Accusations, please remember that it is not for you to prove your innocence, rather for the prosecution to prove that you had non-consensual sex. In doing so, the Police will barrage through your personal life without regard to dignity and basic human rights of privacy. The impact of False Rape Accusations is immeasurable in view of the wide-ranging implications.

Our expert Rape Solicitors have defended those facing False Rape Accusations for more than 30 years. We provide advice and representation in Rape Cases almost daily. Proud of our tenacity, our energetic and pro-active approach to defending these allegations, we have achieved countless successes in Sexual Offences allegations.

What the prosecution must prove

To prove you have committed a crime, the prosecution will have to show that:

  • You have penetrated the victims private part and / or mouth; and
  • The victim did not give consent for this act to be carried out

In proving their case, the prosecution will serve the evidence they wish to rely upon at trial. Our Rape Lawyers will carefully study this evidence, will identify material which is not legally permissible in Court, will contest unlawfully obtained evidence and most notably, will challenge the credibility of any witnesses giving testimony.

We will work with you to understand the circumstances surrounding the allegations and compare your truthful version of events against that documented in the prosecution evidence. We will pull out anomalies and undertake investigation work to find any third-party evidence to support your defence.

Whether we go door to door looking for witnesses, extract CCTV footage from the venue at which you met or we interview others with circumstantial knowledge; our Criminal Solicitors will do whatever needs to be done with the objective of winning your case.

The issue of consent

The issue of consent is a vital key to the case and is often the most tenuous part of a False Rape Accusation. The turn of events is extremely important and we will work with you to understand the sequence. If there were others around you, if you exchanged numbers, if you were already known to each other, if you swapped social media sites, where you had sex and how many times, whether you were drunk or had taken drugs etc. are all crucial points for us to study. Whilst doing so, we will also prepare you for the day you are called into the witness box and asked to give evidence yourself as this is a point at which quite often, cases make or break.
