Offences Against Children
Children are so innocent and vulnerable, and so offences against children rate as one of the most serious and heinous categories of crime known to man.
Unfortunately, due to their vulnerability, children are often targeted as victims of crime, and criminal abuse, exploitation, neglect and cruelty may be perpetrated by a stranger, parent or caretaker.
The Criminal Code Act is the primary legislation covering child-related crimes, and this Act outlines crimes such as child prostitution, child pornography, abduction of children and cruelty to children.
Crimes against children are extremely serious offences with serious punishments. If you have been charged with a serious child-related crime, you will definitely require the help of a legal representative.
