In Pennsylvania, rape is a felony of the 1st degree and can carry a sentence of up to 40 years of incarceration. Further, a rape conviction, and unfortunately even a rape charge, bring with them a stigma and other penalties.
In today’s world it seems as if many of us know someone who was a victim of rape and many more of us know someone who was falsely accused. There are many different types of rape, each with its own unique set of circumstances and aspects that must be considered. Typically rape cases hinge on witness statements and physical evidence.
In every case, the accurate collection, preservation and testing of the physical evidence in the case is crucial for establishing a case against you. It is also imperative that witness statements be cross checked and inconsistencies found.
However, as with most criminal charges, the best defense for a rape charge can only be arrived at after careful consideration of all the details of the case with your attorney.
As a criminal defense attorney, I work diligently to find evidence that will support my client's innocence and establish a reasonable doubt that they are guilty of rape. As your defense attorney, I meticulously review police reports and eyewitness statements. I will conduct my own witness interviews and track down information that can help in obtaining a favorable outcome.
