Sexual Offences

Being found guilty of a sexual offence can have very serious long-term consequences. As well as facing imprisonment, you could be placed on the Sex Offender Register. The Sex Offender Register is a database that allows authorities to track sex offenders. Sexual offences range from indecent assaults to child sex offences and offences involving child abuse material. If you have been charged with a sexual offence, contact Armstrong Lawyers Melbourne Criminal Lawyers today.

Juvenile Offenders

Our Melbourne Criminal Lawyers regularly represent juveniles who have been charged with criminal offences. While juvenile offenders are generally treated more leniently than adults, the Children’s Court has the power to sentence children to periods in detention as well as supervised orders, fines and community-based orders. However, in some cases, young people are accepted into diversionary programs as an alternative to being dealt with by the criminal justice system.

If your child has been charged with a criminal offence, contact our Melbourne Criminal Lawyers today for advice.
