Rape is a felony. You should get proper and immediate representation by contacting defense attorney Susan T. Perkins today.
Rape is one of many sex crimes which are taken very seriously in Court. The term refers to any form of sexual conduct forced upon another person against their will through means of violence, menace, duress, fear of injury or other danger and more. Rape is a non-consensual sexual activity. This means if an alleged victim is unconscious and is unable or cannot consent to an act of sexual activity, then he or she could claim that a rape had occurred.
These cases could be complex because of a number of mitigating and extenuating circumstances which may occur, such as false accusations, media coverage and more. If you have been accused of or charged with rape, it is extremely important to see competent legal counsel to ensure that your rights are protected. Contact Attorney Susan T. Perkins today so that she may evaluate your case and determine the best course of action for you.
Rape is considered a felony and if convicted, a defendant could face severe consequences, such as imprisonment, loss of rights, mandatory registration as a sex offender and most often, large monetary fines.
The likelihood of many of these punishments and penalties depends on the circumstances surrounding the rape case, including whether or not the defendant has prior convictions, is on parole or probation, the amount of media coverage the case has gotten among many other things.
