Sexual offence charges involving minors — those below the age of 18 — are not only sensitive but have a stigma attached. Even before you are convicted, the charges laid have a disabling effect on your day to day life. You could lose your job, your family and even access to your own children. At Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter, our knowledgeable defence lawyers use creative solutions and offer alternatives that ensure your future is protected in the best way possible.
Knowingly or unknowingly, you are risking your way of life when you are charged with child luring. Some of the consequences that you might face if charged with an internet luring or child luring charge could be:
- Mandatory minimum jail time; could be one year if Crown proceeds by indictment
- Compliance with the Sex Offender Registry
- Restrictions on your use of computers, the internet and social media
- Conditions or restrictions on contact with children, including your own
As your defence lawyer, we maintain a high level of confidentiality when handling your case. Our strong defence starts with questioning every step taken by you even before contact was established with the minor. The Crown's evidence against you may be reflecting only one side of the story. We work closely with forensic, internet and computer experts to carefully scrutinize the evidence. Your reputation and dignity are our priority.
