Sex crimes are considered to be among the most serious of charges, and can be difficult to defend due to a natural tendency of juries and prosecutors to believe the alleged victim. If you are convicted of a sex crime in San Mateo or Santa Clara counties, the offense and the consequences will follow you for the rest of your life. Even after completing your lengthy prison sentence and paying your fines, you will be forced to be listed on the California public sex offender registry. In most cases, the crime, an image of your face, and your address are easily found by any person searching sex offenders in the area and you will become a pariah. Being convicted of a sexual crime can completely destroy your life and your future.

Sex crimes accusations must be addressed with a high level of skill by a skilled legal professional. Sexual assault and rape charges can lead to a long prison sentence, and you will be incarcerated with the most dangerous offenders.

What is the legal definition of rape in California Courts?

Rape occurs as when there is sexual penetration without the consent of one of the parties. This can include the non-consenting party being unconscious, underage, or actively resisting intercourse. A rape conviction will depend upon being able to prove that someone did in fact refuse consent or was otherwise unable to give it. The use of drugs and alcohol are frequently factors in rape cases. There are many cases in which the allegations are false. If you are innocent, without highly skilled defense counsel, you could be convicted. You must have a Bay Area rape defense lawyer that knows how to challenge the evidence and present a compelling and persuasive case for your defense.
