When a person is convicted of statutory rape in Washington, not only will they face jail time, fines, and probation, but they also may be required to register as a sex offender. Sex offender registration is something that no one wants looming over their head, and if this happens it can ruin many aspects of your life for years to come.

Date Rape

Date rape is a crime involving forced or unwanted sexual activity that occurs between acquaintances or in the context of a dating relationship.

Where rape is typically charged in the absence of a personal or intimate relationship, date rape is appropriate for cases where the victim and the perpetrator knew one another or were involved in a relationship. Date rape victims and perpetrators can be dating, friends, acquaintances, or could have dated in the past. This type of sexual offense is called “date rape” because it frequently occurs during social interactions, such as a date.

As our lawyers know, date rape can be a difficult crime to prove because there tends to be a lack of physical evidence in these cases. With date rape, it’s usually one person’s word against another’s, which isn’t enough proof for judges and jurors to convict a defendant of this crime.

Your Lynnwood date rape defense attorney will be an important negotiator on your behalf, and will make arguments and present information that will highlight the lack of evidence in your date rape case. Prosecutors must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed date rape, and your experienced and skilled lawyer will work hard to find ways of disproving this.

Statutory Rape

Statutory rape occurs when an adult has sexual intercourse with a minor. Even if the minor consented, the adult can face criminal charges for this type of sex offense.

Statutory rape is often consensual in nature, but because a minor is involved in the sexual act, they are considered legally unable to consent to the sexual act. The penalties for a statutory rape conviction depend largely on the age of the victim and the age of the defendant.

In order to avoid the harsh consequences from a conviction for this crime, you will need advanced representation from a Lynnwood statutory rape defense attorney. The skill and experience level of your lawyer will directly contribute to the success of your case, and here at our Lynnwood law firm, our attorneys will know exactly what needs to be done to give you a fighting chance against statutory rape charges.

Sexual Assault Charges

Sexual assault is defined as unwelcome sexual contact, that is, performing an unwanted act of a sexual nature on another person or coercing someone to engage in a sexual act without his or her consent.

Sexual assault is associated with rape, but the two charges are somewhat different. Sexual assault includes such acts as touching and fondling—acts that are not considered to be intercourse or penetration, as in rape.

Our firm represents clients facing sex crime charges of sexual assault. It takes a special type of attorney to handle sex offenses, and they must have comprehensive knowledge about sex crimes and the laws regarding these types of crimes.

Exceptional Rape and Sexual Assault Defense

As our lawyers have seen, many times rape and sexual assault allegations can be false. Motivated by anger, revenge, or a need for attention, people will falsely accuse others of these crimes. Because of the violent and harmful nature of rape or sexual assault, if a complaint is filed, law enforcement will take immediate action to investigate the matter and may be hasty to make arrests.

Having an attorney will ensure that your rights are protected and will prevent convictions for false allegations. False allegations are very serious and if they are present in your case your defense attorney will do everything possible to expose them.
