Criminal Law

Contrary to what the common man believes, Criminal Law is more intricate and varied. In certain jurisdictions, an act or omission may be seen as illegal or unlawful, whereas in others it may be accepted as legal. Crimes against persons, crimes against property, and crimes against society are the three primary categories under which criminal law can be separated. This may go as far as discussing the duties and ethical standards of medical procedures. LegaMart’s responsibility is to shield you from erroneous allegations and convictions.

Sexual Offences

“No individual shall engage in sexual contact with another when the offender intentionally compels the other person to submit by force or fear of force,” states the legal definition of rape. Further charges may include sexual battery, gross sexual imposition, and sexual imposition, depending on the specifics of the incident. It further elaborates on the situations in which each of the charges would be applicable. All of these legal terminology are further clarified.

The victim of a rape or attempted sexual assault is in a state of crisis afterward. Making decisions at this time is challenging, but the survivor must make some choices that could influence potential legal action. Survivors are free to choose whether or not to call the police and report the assault. The medical personnel must disclose the attack if a survivor visits a hospital, nevertheless. Survivors must comprehend that REPORTING IS NOT THE SAME AS PROSECUTING. But, as soon as a rape is registered, it is classified as a crime against the state, and the victim is now a prosecution witness who is subject to subpoena at any moment. Most of the time, the prosecutor will not pursue a case against the victim’s desires. When it comes to reporting, there is no right or wrong response. Making the option to report is not easy, and NO survivor should be pressured to do so or made to feel guilty or responsible if they choose not to. Considering the benefits and drawbacks of reporting may assist survivors in making a decision.

 

Why some survivors have stated that they report:

 

  • To make the assault’s perpetrator answerable
  • To protect others by potentially prosecuting a criminal
  • For exact retribution or ensure that justice is done
  • So that further survivors can get help and disclose their own abuses
  • To convince “doubters” that the assault actually occurred
  • In order for them to qualify for state funding

 

Survivors’ reasons for choosing not to report include:

 

  • Dread of the attacker
  • Concerns of the attacker’s family taking revenge
  • Distrust of the criminal justice system
  • Dread of others blaming you
  • Wish to put the situation behind us
  • Fear of the opinions of family, friends, and coworkers
  • Fear of being invaded by others

It is vital to report the assault right away and seek medical attention so that you can gather evidence for a solid legal case.

Some phases are predictable if the survivor decides to report and a prosecutor decides to take the case, though police procedures may vary. The victim-witness programme, which is a component of most prosecuting attorneys’ offices, or a rape crisis advocate (call your local rape crisis centre) may be able to support the survivor. Throughout the legal process, an advocate will encourage the victim and explain the proceedings.

Hospital staff members are required to report the incident to the authorities if the survivor is receiving care there.

People Trafficking

A major international crime, human trafficking involves buying and selling individuals and using them for profit. This crime, which happens everywhere in the world, can affect people of various genders, ages, and origins. To fool, coerce, and deceive their victims, traffickers use violence, dishonest employment agencies, and false promises of education and work possibilities. 

The organised networks or individuals responsible for this lucrative crime prey on those who are weak, in need, or just looking for a better life. Human trafficking is described as “the recruitment, transport, transfer, harbouring or receipt of a person by such means as threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud or deception for the purpose of exploitation” in the UN Trafficking in Persons Protocol, which is an addendum to the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.

LegaMart equips victims of trafficking with the knowledge, dedication, and tenacity they need to be successful in their fight for justice.
