Revenge Porn

Our Serious Crime Solicitors have substantial knowledge and experience dealing with all forms of digital media. Whether your case involves the use of a mobile phone device, a tablet, laptop or computer; rest assured our Lawyers will do everything possible to challenge the prosecution’s case, to use technological experts and to identify every piece of evidence useful to your defence.

With the development of technology and increased demand for sexual gratification, sharing sexual messages using digital medial has become the norm. However, once the image or video has been sent, the sender no longer has control over the use of the same and the receiver can easily share the image on all sorts of platforms including social media, reaching potentially millions of viewers to cause permanent embarrassment.

Our Cybercrime Lawyers have in depth knowledge of Revenge Porn offences. Whilst a relatively new piece of legislation, its application and use has risen substantially since implementation. Causing distress by disclosing a private sexual image or video without the consent of the person featuring in it is a criminal offence for which a term of 2 years’ imprisonment can be imposed.

If you have been accused of a Revenge Porn offence or you anticipate being arrested for the same, you must act immediately and seek advice. Acting early ensures you secure the best possible chances of succeeding in your case. Our Solicitors will not only listen to your side of the story and begin gathering evidence to support your case, we will also scrutinise the medium used to disclose the images or videos. We will ensure the prosecution are able to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt, that the images were shared from your device and by you.

If the need arises, we will engage telephony and computer experts who will dissect the manner in which technology allows the sharing of material. They will explore all technological possibilities including that of a third party elsewhere hacking into your device to steal the images or videos for sharing.
