Miami Rape Attorney
Facing rape charges?
There are many types of rape charges, and an experienced attorney and former Miami Dade Cyber Crime Prosecutor from Seltzer Mayberg, LLC can help you understand the charges you are facing and what the punishments may be if you are convicted. Rape is defined as someone forcing an individual into a sexual act. This can be done through violence, threat of injury, force, manipulation, and coercion. Rape is one of the most frowned upon crimes that can be committed in our society, and if you are convicted, you can be facing serious, lifelong consequences, besides those that the court enforces on you. Contact a Miami sex crimes lawyer from our firm today to discuss your options, and to get started on a powerful defense for your case.
There are several crimes that are all considered a form of rape, and facing charges for any of them is serious. They include the following:
- Date rape: date rape usually occurs between two people who know each other, at parties, bars, etc. In addition, drugs are often involved in order to sedate the victim.
- Spousal rape: It is an outdated belief that if one spouse wants to engage in sexual activity that the other one is required to go along with it. One spouse forcing the other to engage in sexual activity is still rape.
- Statutory rape: statutory rape is when an adult has sex with a minor. Even if the sex was consensual, it is still considered rape because if an individual is under 18, they are not legally able to consent to such an activity.
All forms of rape can land someone in serious legal trouble, including lifelong sex offender registration. In addition, probation, counseling, community service, monetary fines, and a lengthy prison sentence are all possible penalties of a rape conviction.
