Sexual offences

3PB Barristers have extensive experience in defending and prosecuting allegations of serious sexual offending. Our members are renowned for their handling of cases involving allegations of a serious sexual nature. Members of chambers have appeared in high profile trials generated by ‘Operation Yewtree’ as well as the much-publicised, multi-defendant grooming and child exploitation cases.

Routinely instructed to defend or prosecute in these types of cases, many members of chambers have extensive experience in dealing with the following types of sexual allegations including:

  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Child abuse and allegations involving vulnerable witnesses
  • Grooming and child exploitation
  • Human trafficking
  • Historic sexual abuse
  • Indecent images

Barristers at 3PB specialising in this area of law are frequently called upon to advise pre-charge and are able to assist at each and every stage of the investigation. Our members are at the forefront of the vulnerable witness training courses and are adept at witness handling in the most sensitive and difficult cases. Whether the case involves expert evidence, the use of intermediaries or cross examination of a young/vulnerable witness, barristers at 3PB have the skill and expertise required in this highly specialised area of criminal law.
