Lawrenceville Rape Attorney
Serious Penalties with a Rape Conviction
In the context of a Georgia court of law, the felony crime of rape occurs
when one or more people commit an act of sexual assault against a non-consenting
person. In Georgia, sexual intercourse is necessary for the crime to be
considered rape, and it is often perpetrated through physical force, under
threat of violence or some other type of harm such as extortion, or occurs
with someone who can neither communicate, nor give consent.
Rape is one of the more serious crimes a person can commit, with
defendants facing 10 to 20 year sentences, life in prison or even death in some cases. If you or someone you care
about has been charged with rape, contact our legal team as soon as possible
to discuss your options. The sooner you act, the stronger defense can
be constructed, and the better chance you have of avoiding conviction.
Protecting your Rights in Court
Rape charges can be very complicated because they are based in large part
on witness testimony, mostly from the accuser and the accused. There are
rarely any witnesses in cases of rape, which means the jury’s decision
could come down to judgments of character. This can be dangerous for men
accused of rape. For this reason alone, it is of the utmost importance
that anyone facing rape charges or any other
sex crime should contact an attorney from our firm as quickly as possible.
