The investigation process related to your sexual assault case can take longer than you might think. The samples and evidence that are related to the investigation will likely all be collected within 72 hours of charges being levelled against you. Processing all the evidence, collecting witness and expert testimony, and getting statements from both of the parties involved can take some weeks.
Once the investigation is done, a trial date will have to be set as well. You could be forced to wait for months for your actual trial, despite the evidence being collected and available to the parties involved in the sexual assault case. This is not the kind of charge that goes away overnight, and you will need to make sure that you have the right legal support to ensure that your case can be presented correctly when you are able to go to court.
