Sex with a Minor Skilled & Experienced Attorneys

Sex with a Minor / Statutory Rape in California

Unlawful sex involving any degree of penetration with a person under the age of 18 is called statutory rape. It can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances of the situation. One of the key factors in a statutory rape case is the age difference between the parties that engaged in the act. If you have been charged with statutory rape, a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney from our firm can provide valuable counsel regarding your legal options and possible defense strategies. You can be charged with statutory rape even if the alleged victim consented to the sexual act.

A guilty verdict in a statutory rape case can result in:

  • Probation
  • Jail time
  • Fines

Criminal penalties for misdemeanor statutory rape include probation, up to a year in jail and $1,000 in fines. A felony conviction can result in probation, up to 4 years in state prison and $10,000 in fines. There are also civil penalties for a statutory rape case that can range from $5,000 to $25,000 depending on the ages of the defendant and alleged victim.
