If you are accused of Historical Abuse you need to ensure you are represented by someone with experience of defending these sort of cases .
Historical Abuse Cases are the most difficult and challenging cases to defend . It requires a methodical and skilled approach to the assessment of the evidence . If you are told by a lawyer all you can do is say you didn’t do it – you are being badly represented .
Unfortunately you have little time to get your head around what is happening to you , you need to be focussed right from the first meeting with the Police who will want to interview you . These days this is generally as a volunteer – you will not be arrested .
After the interview you will no doubt have to wait many weeks or months before a decision and this can be very difficult to deal with . It is to b eloped you may not face charges but you should not assume that .
If Charged that is when the real work has to begin .
