Have You Been Charged with Rape?

Rape is a form of sexual assault that involves unwanted sexual acts. It can include statutory rape, date rape and spousal rape. If you have been arrested for rape, your first line of defense should be to hire a qualified attorney to protect your rights and fight the evidence against you.

Types of Rape

Statutory rape is also known as sexual acts with a minor. You can be charged with statutory rape even if the minor consented to the act, because the law does not consider minors capable of giving consent.

Date rape is forced sexual acts with another person during a social engagement. This includes sexual acts that occurred when the person was unable to give consent because they were intoxicated, under the influence of drugs or unconscious.

Spousal or marital rape is the sexual assault of a marital partner. It includes sexual acts with a spouse who did not consent to or that occurred when she was unconscious, intoxicated or drugged.

What are the Penalties?

Rape is punishable by many years in prison as well as:

  • Heavy fines
  • Psychological treatment
  • Sex offender registration for life
