Rape Cases and Consequences

An accusation of rape is a very serious matter for the individual involved. A rape conviction may result in serious prison time, fines, and the loss of your reputation, your job, your career, and a lifetime stigma. It may negatively affect your personal and social relationships for many years to come. Even the allegation of rape without a resulting conviction can taint the life of the defendant.

Charges of rape may be filed by a state, federal, or military criminal system. Rape is generally defined as sexual intercourse with another that is non-consensual. Rape can consist of forcible rape, statutory rape, spousal rape, and date rape. Other charges associated with rape may be attempted rape, sexual assault, or sexual battery.

Defenses for rape charges may include consent on the part of the alleged victim, lack of evidence, improper procedure on the part of law enforcement, such as illegal questioning, and issues of false allegations or creditability, such as when an angry or upset spouse, ex-spouse, or intimate partner accuses another out of jealousy, revenge, or to gain the upper hand in a divorce or child custody matter.
