Sexual Offences

In Queensland, sexual offences are contained in the Queensland Criminal Code, Part 5 – "Offences Against the Person." These offences cover a wide range of criminal conduct from exposing yourself in public (called performing an act of indecency) through to inappropriate touching of another person without their consent (called sexual assault) or having sexual intercourse with another person without their consent (called rape).

Sexual offences are treated particularly seriously under Queensland law and they all attract a maximum penalty of imprisonment if you are found guilty. For some of the offences contained below, the maximum penalty is a term of life imprisonment. The maximum penalties available emphasise how seriously the law treat these offences. If you have been charged with a sexual offence it is imperative that you obtain expert legal advice as soon as possible.

If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
