Facing a Sexual Assault Charge

If you have been accused of sexual assault charges in Ontario, you might be uncertain what you should do next. Sexual assault charges in Canada are a serious matter and it is worth making sure that you are not conducting yourself incorrectly before you go before a judge to present your side of the case. Always make sure that you secure a skilled sexual assault lawyer right away if you have been accused of serious charges like these.

Once you have the help of a skilled sexual assault lawyer in Toronto, you will be given some advice about the way to behave before your case can be heard by a judge. Make sure that you follow all of these suggestions and best practices so that you are able to present your side of the story without any other considerations muddying the waters of the case.

Stay Calm and Keep Quiet

One of the best ways to prove that you are innocent of a crime that is founded on aggression is to behave in the exact opposite manner. It can be challenging to behave calmly when you have been accused of this kind of crime, but you need to keep control of your emotions. The more under control you are, the more likely it will be that your side of the story will be heard correctly. When you behave in an emotional way or argue with your accuser, you might seem like the aggressor and this might make a poor impression on any witnesses to the incident in question.

Don’t Argue with Law Enforcement

When law enforcement is involved in a situation that leads to sexual assault charges, it is always in your best interest to be compliant with the police in every way. Remember that the police are just trying to do their job and take care of everyone involved in the situation properly. Even if you have been accused unfairly, it will not help your case to fight with the police or behave in an improper way toward them.

Talk to Your Lawyer Before Police

Make sure that you tell the police that you want to speak to your lawyer before you tell them anything. Even small details that you might relay incorrectly, or mistakes to do with your timeline or other information related to the incident can be damning later on. You should always invoke your right to speak to your attorney before you give any kind of statement to the police.

Be Honest with Your Sexual Assault Lawyer

When your sexual assault lawyer shows up to discuss the incident with you, be completely honest with them. These kinds of situations can include embarrassing details and information that you do not want to share, but you need to tell your lawyer everything to be sure that they can defend you properly. Anything that you leave out of your story could come back to bite you when the case is put before a judge.

You will need to tell your lawyer if you did behave inappropriately toward the accuser that is involved in the case, and you will need to explain in detail what your intentions were for the interaction that led to the accusation. Intention can be very important for those who are involved in these kinds of cases as the accused, and you will need to make it clear to your attorney what your real intentions were.

Don’t Contact the Accuser/Alleged Victim in Your Assault Case

Never contact the person who has accused you of sexual assault. You will only make it seem like you are trying to intimidate them or change their mind about their accusation. Even if you knew the person well before the incident that led to the accusation, you cannot reach out to them after the charges have been made. Make sure that you also do not respond to any communication that they initiate and speak with your lawyer right away if they do reach out to you. You do not want to have any communication between you and your accuser take place that is not documented carefully.

Keep Quiet About Your Case on Social Media and in Your Community

Never discuss the case on social media, or with anyone else in your community. You can speak with family or with close friends, but even giving this kind of information out can lead to trouble down the road if someone provides information to the wrong parties not involved in the case. You want to be sure that you keep the information that you know to yourself and that you do not share anything about the case or your defence with anyone that you do not trust. It is always a good idea to keep a low profile until your case has been concluded just to make sure that you get the fairest treatment by the judge and jury and to prevent other people from coming forward with information that might be related to the incident.

Highly recommended.ARRARR ★★★★★ I was falsely accused and charged with a serious offence. All it took was just one phone call from the complainant. As an immigrant, it was a nightmare. Fortunately Igor was the first person whom I contacted and I knew he was the one and I retained him. Beware of the lawyers who try to scare you, make you feel insecure. From the first phone call, he never made me feel insecure. He was confident that he can get the work done. Igor and Daniel promptly attended all my court dates. It took a while to achieve the resolution and finally my case was unconditionally withdrawn. I can't thank him enough. As Igor is a busy person, I was getting updates regularly from Daniel. I would give six stars to Daniel. Igor should never let him go. I would definitely recommend this law firm. You might sometimes feel that Igor is late in responding, but he'll be putting all his efforts behind the scene. Just have faith in him. I wish Igor and Daniel all the best.Maria AgasMaria Agas ★★★★★ I was very impressed with his professionalism, swift responses and attention to detail.

They were extremely supporting and knowledgeable. Thank you for everything you have done!Jason WorthJason Worth ★★★★★ Words cannot describe what Igor has done for me. Igor is the most skilled and amazing attorney I have ever met in my entire life. I had a long list of charges (some that carried some serious penitentiary time) and worked some serious magic with countless hours behind the scenes for me to make just 1 appearance and have ALL THE CHARGES WITHDRAWN and a peace bond put in place. The timeframe for it was amazing as well he took care of me and this situation in only 15 months! (we all know the justice system does not work that fast normally!) If you want a very highly skilled, passionate, available(Igor would take calls and messages even after normal hours to fill me in!), experienced and dedicated attorney that will work tirelssly with you and for you to get you the absolute best results then Igor is your man! 5 stars does not do this man justice he deserves 100 stars!N -N - ★★★★★ Great lawyer.

In December 2022, I was wrongfully accused of 2 serious charges under my name however, Igor took care of it from the beginning and finally all of those wrongful charges are withdrawn and now I feel much better and at ease. I am very glad that Igor could help me throughout the hard process and bring out the best result possible! Also, what I want to pinpoint out for the most is that he picks up the call by himself and you get to contact directly with him whenever you have questions or want updates throughout the process. I know that it could be tiring for lawyers who have other clients at the moment but Igor always keep a close contact with his client and I was always able to talk to him directly when I needed for the last 11 months. At last, I wish all the best for Igor and hope that god blesses throughout his career and may he be able to offer his professionalism to help other people in need. Thank you Igor :)SAID ALISAID ALI ★★★★★ Igor is an exceptional lawyer! I am very thankful for his excellent professional legal advice and assistance, he was able to drop my S.A charges. Thank you Igor for everything you've done, I really appreciate your services.M AlyM Aly ★★★★★ I was charged with SA, which rarely ever get dropped and generally always go to trial. Igor Vilkhov was able to get my charges fully withdrawn with no consequences or harm to me.Every lawyer I spoke with quoted me astronomical fees and explained how they would have to jump through hoops and perform ‘legal gymnastics’ to help me. Igor was the only lawyer who gave me a fair and realistic fee structure. He walked me through what the process would look like and gave realistic expectations. It was clear from the start he knew what he was doing and that his experience was significant. Throughout the process he provided regular updates and was always reachable. If you’re charged, I highly recommend at least speaking with Igor before making a decision on an attorney.Melissa HinrichsenMelissa Hinrichsen ★★★★★ Igor was amazing to deal with. His response time was amazing compared to others. He knew what I needed and got the job done. I highly recommend to everyone.NicoleNicole ★★★★★ Very kind and helpfulDevere SDevere S ★★★★★ Mr.Vilkhov is a professional and very good lawyer, goes through everyrhing to make sure it gets dealt with properly, He replies fast if you have questions or anything as well, along with his staff Jessica she was a big help as well.js_loader
