Richardson and Clark: Sexual Offences A Practitioner's Guide is an authoritative, practical handbook on the law relating to sexual offences.
Covering the 70+ sexual offences currently on the statute books, each is dealt with individually by addressing the elements the prosecution must prove, potential defences, likely issues, jurisdiction and sentence. Charts and flow diagrams allow quick access to information during crucial time-sensitive situations, such as the post-arrest questioning of the accused, preparatory hearings and the trial itself. Case preparation checklists and draft indictments as well as guidance on Sexual Offences Prevention Orders, sex offender notification, representing defendants charged with indecent or extreme image offences and key evidential issues arising in sex cases are all covered.
Richardson and Clark: Sexual Offences A Practitioner's Guide is aimed at the busy criminal practitioner and provides easily accessible reference material and practical advice.
