Sex Crimes

Being charged with a crime in New Zealand can affect your reputation and your standing in the community. Being charged with a sex crime, particularly one involving a young person, is still more damaging. And being convicted of a sex crime will follow you, in various ways, for the rest of your life. That is why, if you find yourself facing a charge on a sex-related crime, you must secure the best help as quickly as possible. It is essential to protecting your liberty, your livelihood, and your relationships.

Types of Sex Crimes in New Zealand

Though some crimes are clearly more serious than others, New Zealand takes all types of sex offences seriously, both in terms of prosecuting and in punishing the convicted. By the same token, to Baden Meyer, there is no such thing as a “minor” offence. No matter what the charge, he gives his all to making sure you have the most thorough representation possible against charges including (but not limited to) the following:

  1. Rape (sexual violation)
  2. Indecent assault
  3. Unlawful sexual connection
  4. Possession of objectionable material

What’s at Risk?

If you’re charged with a sexual offence, you already know that you could be facing prison time. You could face court-ordered supervision or community service. In some case an Extended Supervision Order can be imposed; restricting your freedom in the future.
