Allegations of sexual offences are serious allegations and involve any sexual act which is outside the safe and prescribed perimeters of the law. Although it is accurate that sex crimes are quite severe, it is also right to point out that some are more severe than others. Engaging in sexual activities with minors for instance is deemed to be a very serious sexual offence. There are quite a number of other sex crimes and they include rape, indecent exposure, prostitution, and sex offences against vulnerable people such as persons in care, for instance. As serious as any allegation brought under sex crime is, it is even much worse where such allegations have been falsely brought against an individual. It is, without a doubt, one of the worst experiences ever. It is an experience which, without the appropriate legal representation may even turn out to be far worse should the accused be convicted and sentenced.
The Sexual Offences Act 2003 extends the scope and meaning of sexual offences to new grounds including causing a child to watch sexual or pornographic images, non-consensual voyeurism, assault by penetration and penetrating a corpse. The Act clarifies the majority of gray areas in previous sexual offences legislations. Sadly however, it is just as easy under the Act, despite the major amendments it introduced, for false allegations to be brought against an individual in certain areas of sexual crimes.
