Statutory Rape

Cases involving Statutory Rape claims are often multi-dimensional. There are often numerous people involved, including the accused, the alleged victim and the parents of the alleged victim. Sometimes these cases involve boyfriends and girlfriends. Other times there may be confusion about the alleged victim’s age. The defense of these cases requires immediate and thorough investigation of all facts and circumstances.

If you have been charged with Statutory Rape, you need a skilled criminal defender to protect your rights. You need a lawyer who focuses specifically on criminal cases and one who has extensive experience with sex crimes.
