Orange County Statutory Rape Attorney

What is statutory rape?

The act of rape is usually associated with a male using threats and violence to force a female to submit to sexual intercourse. The charge of statutory rape is generally different. It simply concerns the commission of sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 18. Even if the teen has lied and led you to believe you were with an older person, you can find yourself arrested and charged with a very serious crime. It is crucial to your future to discuss the situation with an Orange County criminal defense attorney that is experienced in the defense of this type of crime.

Statutory Rape Defense in Orange County

Based on California statutes, a minor cannot engage in sex and even though willing, cannot legally consent. This can be confusing for teens that are dating or even planning to marry, where one is 18 or older and the other is under 18. Statutory rape is not confined to rape of the female. An older female engaging in sex with a male who is under 18 can be charged with statutory rape. Conviction can result in incarceration, fines, probation, assessment by psychologists to determine if you qualify as a Sexually Violent Predator, registration as a sex offender which is a life changing status and other severe consequences.
