A conviction of rape or sexual assault charges can result in significant incarceration periods as well as a life-long registration as a sex offender. When selecting a sexual assault lawyer, Edmonton has an experienced law firm with Haryettt & Company whose understanding of the law will be leveraged in your defence. In the case of a sexual assault charge, our team is able to engage experts who can conduct their own independent investigations, provide testimony. In bringing our own expertise, we can contradict prosecutors and witness testimony and conduct interview of our own witnesses.

In trials involving sexual assault or sexual harassment, they are typically decided due to the work defence lawyers conduct during pretrial investigation and preparation. In order to give you the best chance to beat the charges, we investigate phone records, voice and text message, social media history, email and other related correspondence. In the cases where sexual assault is alleged, our defence team’s strategy may rely in large part in scrutinizing the alleged victim’s personal relationships - present and past - as in many cases there may be a past acquaintance with the accused acquainted with the accused.

You or someone you know could be facing harsh punishment if either of you have been arrested and face physical assault charges, aggravated assault charges, domestic assault charges,  indictable/felony assault charges or any other violent crime charges. Physical assault or Criminal assault is basically considered “touching without consent” or “unwanted touching.” Assault and battery law allows room for an accused person to avoid punishment or get a lesser sentence if the defence lawyer invokes the argument of self-defense. If someone receives criminal assault charges, the self-defence argument can be very technical and is successfully used in not only simple assault cases, but also in cases of murder, assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and other aggravated assault charges.

Trying To Avoid A Criminal Record Due To Domestic Assault Charges?

Cases involving domestic violence are considered “spousal assaults.” Assault laws have no specific criminal statutes dedicated to these “spousal assault” charges, in Alberta. That being said, domestic violence assault cases are prosecuted under one of the existing assault charges; like simple assault or assault causing bodily harm. These domestic assault battery cases usually involve a “he said/she said” incident. The “domestic assault victim” and the accused often disagree on the nature of events that lead up to the altercation. In the area of spousal assault, the criminal defence team at Haryett & Co. have enabled many of our clients to avoid more serious penalties by working with the Prosecution to drop the assault charge in exchange for the client agreeing to a certain type of restraining order called an “810 peace bond” or a “recognizance.”

The sentence for being found guilty of committing a violent sex crime can have long-term, negative effects on the rest of your life, your work & career, your financial situation and your family long after your sentence has been served. You may have to submit your name to federal child-protection registries, you may not be eligible to practise your profession or be admitted into certain graduate school programs. You may also end up on the losing side in family court issues and in child custody decisions. A conviction may further devastate your family life by inhibiting you to volunteer, or coach, or be involved in any of your children’s recreational, sports or social activities.
