Sexual Offences

Patterson and Paterson Defence Lawyers have been defending sexual offences within Inverness and throughout the Highlands and Islands for years. We defend all matters from sexual assault to rape. We have decades of combined experience in defending these cases.


The law relating to rape and other sexual offences has been largely consolidated in a single Act of the Scottish Parliament, The Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009.


There are a range of crimes that can be considered as sexual offences, including non-consensual crimes such as rape or sexual assault, crimes against children including child sexual abuse or grooming, and crimes that exploit others for a sexual purpose, whether in person or online.


Allegations can occur between strangers, friends, acquaintances, current or ex-partners, or family members. The passage of time does not prevent the prosecution of sexual offences, and an increasing number of historical cases are being prosecuted.


It is vitally important you instruct an experienced team of lawyers to begin preparing and defending your case. Patterson and Paterson Defence Lawyers have experience in dealing with all sexual offence related allegations, from sexual assault to rape. We can be contacted at any time for a free initial consultation.

Patterson and Paterson Defence Lawyers are located in Inverness, opposite the new court building and are easily accessible for all forms of transport. Please contact us today on 01463 418 277.


We are also located in Wick, on Kirk Lane which runs parallel to the High Street and again not far from the court and is easily accessible for all forms of transport.


If you are out with the Inverness or Wick area, our lawyers are regularly in the courts around the Highlands and Islands and can usually meet with you in person at relatively short notice.
