At DC Kaye & Co we pride ourselves in considering each case very carefully and advising our clients of the defences that may be available to them based on their specific circumstances and instructions.
Every offence has very specific criteria that the prosecution must prove, and we can advise you in detail of those elements in order to establish whether you have a defence to the charge.
Generally speaking in order to secure a conviction against you the prosecution must prove two things;
- That you intended to commit a criminal offence; and
- That you actually committed the act that amounted to the criminal offence.
Because the prosecution must prove the two elements of a crime, you may have a ‘defence’ to a charge even if you in fact committed the act. These are important and complex issues so we suggest that you contact us as a matter of urgency if you think that you may have a defence to your case or to discuss the possible defences to your case generally.
To arrange an appointment to discuss with our specialist lawyers please contact our Litigation Department secretary Viki Summers.
