When sexual activity occurs in which one of the parties involved was not willing and expressed their opposition, a conviction may be the result. Sexual activity should only take place when both parties are in agreeance. Sexual violation is a felony and that wrongful action can affect your for years to come. In some cases even if both parties were involved and willing a rape charge can still be faced. If one of the individuals involved is a minor (under the age of 17) then it is known as statutory rape. Rape charges can lead to fines, years of jail time and the need to register as a sexual offender. Rape can occur between strangers as well as family members, friends and acquaintances. Either way it is illegal and highly punishable. When violence or threats are used the charges become more serious.
DEFENSE FROM A DALLAS RAPE LAWYER
Since rape is a serious crime, when someone is accused of it they may be looked at as guilty before even being tried. You have rights under the law and it is my goal to uphold them. I seek to make sure you have a fair trial and I formulate a defensive plan as a part of that effort. A rape charge may force you to be registered online meaning the information of your conviction is access to the public. Your neighbors, friends, family and anyone can access that information, damaging you further. The criminal defense you have can often times make or break a case so you need a well-qualified attorney to represent you. I have successfully handled many cases during my time. I also know what it is like from the prosecution side, working formerly as a DWI task force prosecutor so I have a strong understanding of the criminal process as a whole.
