What Is The Penalty For Rape?

Being charged with rape is one of the most serious offenses you can be charged with.  Even if you win, you lose.

As a former prosecutor I can tell you that the mere allegation of rape is enough to ruin someone’s life if it is not properly defended.  Society looks at a rape allegation as almost being a scarlet letter that you did something horrible.

If you have been charged with rape you are facing a prison sentence of 3 to 11 years per charge if the alleged victim is over 13, if the alleged victim is under that you are looking at a mandatory life sentence with the possibility of parole after 15 years.

These cases are incredibly complex and require the use of not only a skilled and experienced defense attorney but you will probably need to hire a private investigator (which we can help with) to fight these charges.

Often when these cases are aggressively defended the result is favorable to the defendant but it is incredibly important that you do not wait to see what will happen, you need to immediately act as soon as you hear the allegation has been made.

Once the police get involved it is very hard to get the truth out.
