Abstract The law and procedure relating to sexual offences is notoriously complex. Since the advent of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, the law (both as to the offences and as to sentencing) changes depending on when the offence was committed, the age of the parties involved and the nature of the act committed.

This new edition of the Sexual Offences Handbook has been updated to reflect the latest law, practice and procedure in all cases involving historic and recent sexual offences, providing a step-by-step approach from the perspectives of both prosecution and the defence.

Written by practitioners and academics with extensive experience of researching, preparing and presenting such trials, this practical and accessible work will prove an invaluable reference for those working within this specialised area of criminal law. This new edition:

◾covers new legislation, case-law and guidance
◾is essential for dealing with all recent and/or historic allegations
◾considers new sexual offences sentencing guidelines
◾Deals with indecent images and other prohibited publications
