Date Rape

Date Rape is defined as forcibly engaging is sexual intercourse or penetration following a voluntary social engagement. Here, the victim is not willing to submit to the sexual advances and resists, yet the offender engages the victim in unwanted sex. The fact that the parties were acquainted is not a defense to date rape. Date rape charges may be coupled with additional counts of oral copulation.

Defenses to Date Rape

Numerous defenses are available to a date rape charge. An experienced attorney must carefully examine the case to find out what particular defenses must be alleged and argued.

Consentual Sex

The usual defense to a date rape charge is "consentual sex". Here, the defendant claims there was sex, but it was not against the alleged victim's will. So, the defense is that two consenting adults willingly socialized and later engaged in intercourse.

To establish a valid defense, the defense attorney should present a "motive to lie" or "bias" on the part of the vicitm. For instance, rape charges are sometimes brought to later sue in civil court for money. Rape charges are also a common method of retaliation or to sort out past personal dealings.

A forensic expert and an experienced investigator must also be hired to check the circumstances of the alleged date rape, to do DNA testings, and to inspect and test each item of clothing worn by the defendant and the victim at the time of the alleged rape, and to cross-check all events sorrounding the alleged date rape.

All circumstances and events leading to the alleged date rape must be examined and reviewed. All eye witnessed particularly those who witnessed the defendant and the victim socialize prior to the alleged rape need to be interviewed and possibly used as trial witnesses.

A rape charge should be taken very seriously and must be defended by an experienced attorney specialized in the sex crimes area. For a free consultation, CALL 866-533-3363
