Los Angeles Rape & Sex Crime Lawyer
Of all the existing sex crimes in our state, rape is considered the most serious by a substantial margin. Indeed, it is considered one of the most serious crimes overall, second only in its severity to
manslaughter. Rape is charged when an individual knowingly or intentional forces another to perform a sexual act in which there is penetration of the mouth, genitals, or anus.
One can be said to be legitimately victimized by rape when:
- They are made to partake in a sexual act due to force or violence
- They are unable to consent to partaking in a sexual act due to mental illness
- They are coerced into a partaking in a sexual act by someone employed by the government
- They are under the age of legal consent (the letter of the law states that an underage individual is unable to consent to engaging in a sex act)
In addition to the very severe penalties you will face if you are convicted of rape, there is a strong likelihood that you will pay a high personal price as well. Being connected in any way to such a crime can serve to negatively impact all facets of your life, including your relationships with your family and friends, and those that you work with. In attempting to avoid these consequences, it may greatly benefit you to retain the services of seasoned lawyer who fill work diligently for you.
