Client Avoids Jail for Relationship With Child Under 16

Our solicitor Susana Farate represented a young man facing criminal charges arising from a relationship he had with a person under the age of 16.

Taking up the matter mid-way through proceedings, Susana sought to negotiate with the prosecution. The Prosecution remained adamant and was pushing for immediate imprisonment.

Our client pleaded guilty to the charges at the earliest opportunity. This made the court more lenient in its sentencing as well as avoiding the lengthy and stressful trial process.

Susana submitted that the client showed remorse for his actions and that his circumstances should be differentiated from serious child sex cases and that he should not be penalised by imprisonment. The sentencing judge accepted this and sentenced the client to a 12 month Intensive Supervision Order.

This case illustrates the value of skilled legal representation in sentencing hearings. Susana’s experience in criminal law, as well as her dedication to achieving a favourable outcome for her clients, led to this young client avoiding imprisonment.

After 5 years of constant dispute we contacted Go To Court Lawyers and after our first meeting we left feeling completely relieved. Our lawyer took care of all of the correspondents, completely relieving us of any stress associated with the case and we trusted him to take care of us and he did not disappoint. He managed to get our case settled out of court and we have returned to our normal lives after 5 years. My only regret is that I didn't contact them sooner.
