Criminal Offences

There is a wide range of criminal offences, reflecting all types of allegation. This section of CriminalDefence.info is focused on explaining the following groups of criminal offences:

In each category we have described the specific charges and detailed the elements of that offence. You will see what the police or Prosecution need to prove in each case, and also the possible sentences that a Court might consider.

For information about how criminal offences are dealt with by the police or Courts, or for information about sentencing, please see the Criminal Justice section of the site.

If you are accused of committing a criminal offence, it is important you understand the case against you. This site will help you with the basic details about the allegations against you. However, if you need specialist advice on a case we may be able to recommend a criminal defence solicitor or barrister who can help you.
