How Is the Act of Rape Defined?
Sex crimes can often feel confusing, especially in the chaotic aftermath of an arrest. We feel that you should understand not only your rights but the charges which have been brought against you. We have 40 years of experience in the field of sex crime defense, including defending rape charges. The exact penalties for a rape conviction depend on the nature of the alleged crime, the age of the alleged victim, and a variety of other factors.
Rape is defined as sexual intercourse which:
- The victim cannot consent to due to physical or mental disability
- Was committed using duress, force, violence, or a combination
- The victim cannot consent to because they were unconscious
- Was committed with the use of threats of retaliation
