Racially Aggravated Offences Huddersfield
Have you been accused of a Racially Aggravated Offence?
Public order offences are increasingly charged using variations on the original offences which are ‘racially aggravated’.
How do we deal with Public Order Offences?
No two cases in criminal law are of course the same, but certain aspects of good defence preparation should be present with a properly experienced lawyer. As with any allegation involving violence, where someone is charged with acting in a certain way, we, as the defence team look at the evidence and determine whether it supports the prosecution or not. CCTV, contrasting witness statements and what our client says must all be looked at very closely, and weak elements in the prosecution case must be attacked.
Public order offences are unusual in that it is general behaviour and even words which can result in a conviction. And of course, the number of offences and variations in each one means that having a good team of lawyers who have a specialisation in this area is an advantage.
Racially Aggravated Offences
An offence can become racially aggravated if at the time of committing the offence, or immediately before or after doing so the person demonstrates towards the victim of the offence hostility based on the victim’s membership ( or presumed membership ) of a racial group or the offence is motivated (wholly or partly) by hostility towards members of a racial group based on their membership of that group.
Most commonly theses type of offences are linked to incidents of violence/assault or public order.
If convicted the sentence is increased as it is seen as an aggravating feature to the case.
Expert legal advice can be provided on these offences. No two cases in criminal law are of course the same but good defence preparation is essential in dealing with these type of allegations.
