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.
