Intelligent Defense Against Date Rape Charges

The term "date rape" sounds just as terrible as any other type of rape or sexual assault. To a jury, the mere word "rape" may likely conjure up feelings of disgust and fear, pushing them to convict a defendant. That's why you need a strong advocate on your side. You need someone to intelligently unearth the full story and make sure you are not unjustly condemned.

Some Allegations Are True, But Some Are Not

People can be accused of date rape for many different reasons. In some cases, it's because they actually committed the offense. In other cases, the so-called victim is lying. He or she may want to get revenge at an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, or he or she may simply regret agreeing to the sexual act and wants to pretend it was forced.

You can count on me to carefully sift the facts. If there are any inaccuracies in the alleged victim's story, I will highlight them. If the rape charge was the result of a misunderstanding, I will identify it. In every case, I will strive to get the charges against you reduced or dropped, saving you a world of pain and legal penalties.

Drugs And Alcohol Make The Case More Complex

The presence of Rohypnol or other "date rape drugs" in a person's system is challenging evidence to overcome. However, it may still be possible to show that someone else added the drug to the alleged victim's drink.

The matter becomes far more complicated if the alleged victim was already under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the encounter took place. What if he or she was slightly intoxicated but not fully drunk? What if he or she said, "Leave me alone!" with a smile and a wink? Was it consensual sex or date rape?
