Santa Clarita Rape Defense Lawyer

Fighting Rape Charges

You may be charged with rape for any act of sexual penetration which does not have the consent of the other party. This applies not only if they protested the act but also if they are unable to give consent for any reason. This may occur in cases where the person is unconscious, mentally or physically disabled, intoxicated, or a minor who is considered legally incapable of consenting. Other situations can also fit the definition of rape in sex crime charges.

There are several defenses which may be used in a rape case. Some of these include proving that you were accused due to mistaken identity or because the alleged victim has a personal reason for making a false accusation. It does happen that individuals can be falsely accused by someone due to jealousy or upset or to stain their reputation during a custody battle. Procedural errors and violations of your Constitutional rights can cause your case to be thrown out. A Santa Clarita criminal defense attorney can investigate your case and determine the best approach to your defense.
