Harassment and Breach Offences

Harassment and Breach Offences

These offences typically arise in a domestic context. Inevitably relationships break down and courts have the power to introduce orders which prevent certain parties from contacting each other. That is not to say that such contact is prohibited absolutely and our solicitors have successfully defended and mitigated on behalf of clients in these scenarios.

In our experience, complainants occasionally use such allegations to their advantage, for example in child custody proceedings, where allegations of breaches or harassment are made in order to secure arrests and convictions against the accused.

Certain post conviction orders are made, sometimes without the accused’s knowledge or such a length of time has passed since the order that the accused may no longer have knowledge of its existence. In these circumstances, the accused may end up breaching an order without even realising or may have a reasonable excuse.
