Accused of Date Rape?

Date rape involves the act of rape in which the victim has a casual or pre-existing relationship with the offender such as a dating relationship. It is important to remember that even if you had a prior sexual relationship with the victim, you can still be accused of date rape if the victim says that there was non-consensual sex on even one occasion.

Many people mistakenly believe that the police will not investigate an allegation of date rape where the individuals have a prior sexual relationship. Many people also mistakenly believe they cannot be convicted if there is no DNA evidence or other evidence corroborating the victim's accusation. This is not true. You can be convicted when the only evidence is the victim's word.

When charged with a sex crime, the mere accusation of the crime can have a devastating effect on your life, including serious harm to your reputation, career and personal relationships. A sex crime conviction can follow you for the rest of your life. If convicted, you can face a lifetime registration as a sex offender and severe criminal penalties. Regardless of the severity or circumstances of your offense, your sex offender registration becomes public record, and your neighbors and employers will be able to see this identification indefinitely.

Our Los Angeles Date Rape Defense Lawyers Can Help

Los Angeles sex crime charges generally pit the word of the accused against the word of the victim. Physical evidence may be available immediately after the alleged act- oftentimes the police have the accuser submit to a rape test kit. This evidence can be used to your defense if you obtain an effective defense team immediately.

Defending yourself against rape charges is different from other areas of criminal law and requires very specific techniques and experience. An effective defense team often employs psychologists, medical experts, private investigators and an attorney with the expertise to use these tools in the most effective manner.

Rape charges are often "he said, she said" contests in which principle evidence is the word of the victim. The outcome of rape cases depends in large part on the attorneys involved and should be fought aggressively to avoid lifetime sex offender registration and harsh prison sentences.
