Sex Offenders Register & Orders

The spectre of the Sex Offender’s Register looms behind many Internet Crime offences and understanding how and why it will come into play, and how to avoid being on it, is an essential part of dealing with such cases.

The use of Civil Orders has also become a very important consideration, and the impact that a civil order under the Sex Offenders Act can have will be an inevitable factor for anyone involved in such matters.

The Sex Offender’s Register and other Orders have a common aim of risk management and control of offenders or those who are deemed to pose a risk, above, beyond, or alongside the usual features of the Criminal Law.  Whether or not or for how long you will be subject to these orders or requirements will depend very much on the nature and seriousness of the case and a careful understanding of the state of the evidence.  However, a person can be subject to such prohibitions or requirements without ever being convicted of an offence, and the consequences can last much longer than any sentence.

At Mowbray Woodwards we understand the concern over the Sex Offender’s Register or other orders will be highly important and relevant to the way in which the case is handled.  By understanding the law and the procedure our specialist team can take all possible steps to avoid a person being subject to these orders.  More detail on the Sex Offender’s Register and the other Types of Orders are available by clicking the side panel, although expert advice on these issues should always be taken on the basis of the particular circumstances in any case.
