This text is Volume 4 in Emond’s Criminal Law Series.

Due to their nature, sexual offence cases can pose a variety of complex and unique challenges. Prosecuting and Defending Sexual Offence Cases: A Practitioner’s Handbook is designed to help practitioners overcome various obstacles by focusing on the procedural, evidentiary, and strategic elements specific to these types of cases.

Analysis of case law and relevant Criminal Code provisions are integrated to effectively guide readers through the flow of a sexual offence case. The text addresses key issues encountered at different stages of the process, including those regarding bail, publication bans, and sentencing. It also delves deeply into evidentiary issues such as establishing consent, discussion of the complainant’s sexual history, the admission of third party records, and the taking of children’s evidence. Moreover, this is the first text on sexual assault cases to deal with the rights of victims and their representation, which is done in part by exploring the new Canadian Victims Bill of Rights.

Authored by criminal defence lawyer Daniel Brown and Crown prosecutor Jill Witkin, the text provides practice information valuable to any current and aspiring Crowns, defence lawyers, and judges. Their ample coverage of both evidence and policy makes this text an essential resource on all facets of litigating sexual offence cases.
