read more › Domestic Assault in Scotland is defined as 'any form of physical, sexual or mental and emotional abuse which might amount to criminal conduct and which takes place within the context of a relationship.' The relationship can be between partners (married, cohabiting, civil partnership or otherwise) or ex-partners and can take place in the home or elsewhere. If you have been charged with a domestic assault charge you should get in touch with our expert solicitors as soon as possible. The consequences of being arrested, charged or convicted on a domestic abuse charge are that in certain professions (such as teachers, doctors and lawyers) it is a requirement to disclose this information.

read more › If you have had stalking allegations made against you, it is crucial that you speak to a solicitor as soon as possible. Stalking can range from what can first-off seem as unthreatening repeated behaviour such as sending gifts and hanging around the victim's home or place of work or neighbourhood, to explicit threats and actual attacks on the complainer or their property. The behaviour can also be towards other family members. This is known as 'stalking by proxy'. Stalking can result in Interdicts and Non-Harassment Orders being served, but can also lead to fines or a prison sentence.

read more › If you have received a citation to attend court on an assault charge, get in touch with a solicitor straight away. Assault is when you make an approach on someone which is intended to cause harm or puts the victim in a state of alarm. You do not, therefore, have to make physical contact with the complainer. If you have been charged with aggravated assault, this means there is an additional factor along to make the charge a stronger form of assault, such as assault with a weapon, or assault resulting in a severe injury.

read more › If you have been charged with Breach of the Peace, get in touch with us as soon as possible. Breach of the Peace is an offence that can be applied to a number of scenarios as it is any incident where a person's conduct causes fear or alarm or a disturbance to the community. The inclusion of 'disturbance of the community' means the offence is not limited to threatening behaviour; it also includes lewd conduct and other disturbing behaviour such as following people. A police officer can arrest anyone who commits a breach of the peace without the need for a warrant.

read more › If you have received a citation to attend court, get in touch with a solicitor straight away. A citation is a document from the Procurator Fiscal which provides you with a date for a hearing to answer a charge at court. You will be asked what you want to plead at the first hearing and it is highly advisable you have legal advice before you attend. Get in touch with us straight away. We are highly experienced in both Sheriff Court and High Court cases and have a consulting room adjacent to the Glasgow Sherriff Court in Carlton Place.

read more › Being charged with a crime can be a stressful and confusing time, particularly if the experience is new to you. There's lots of information out there about what happens in court. Most of it is misleading or just plain wrong. A lot of what is assumed to be common knowledge about criminal trials relates to English criminal courts (which are very different to Scottish court) or the result of sensationalised TV drama. Remember, you are innocent until you are proven guilty, and the onus is on the prosecution to prove that you are guilty - not on you to prove your innocence.

read more › Football is often known as the beautiful game and while what happens on the pitch can be just that, often what is alleged to happen off the pitch can be the opposite. Every year, police in Scotland make hundreds of arrests at football grounds and in the surrounding areas on match days relating to violence and disorder among fans. If you have been charged with a football related offence, please contact Keith J Tuck and our criminal defence solicitors will give you immediate, expert advice. Where it is alleged you have been involved in violence, you could be charged with the common law offence of assault.

read more › According to its recent figures, Action Fraud - the national reporting centre for fraud and internet crime - estimates that, each year in the UK, 1.2bn is lost to Investment Fraud. Therefore, it is important to stay vigilant and aware of Investment Fraud, and what to do if you are accused of committing this crime. The principle enforcement agencies are increasingly targeting complaints by investors who have been targeted by high yield schemes. UK investment law is notoriously complex and ambiguity exists around when it is breached.

read more › The Department of Work and Pensions figures showed a 16.6% increase in injury claims over the past four years in Scotland, compared to a 4.5% decrease in England over the same period.

read more › Benefit fraud is a serious offence with potentially life changing consequences for individuals. Benefit fraud covers situations where someone has failed to report a change in their circumstances, for example becoming employed, or has given false information in their benefits application. This type of fraud is treated seriously by enforcement agencies - the fact that suspects face criminal sanctions is evidence of this robust approach. The other consequences of benefit fraud include an investigation into your affairs by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)'s fraud investigators, a formal caution, a fine and reduction or removal of benefits.
