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
murder/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
- 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 a
seasoned lawyer who will work diligently for you.
