Sexual Assault Attorney in Allentown, Easton & Bethlehem

Sexual Assault in the Lehigh Valley

In Pennsylvania, sexual assault is a 2nd degree felony and can carry a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

 

Sexual Assault is defined by 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 3124.1 as:

Except as provided in section 3121 (relating to rape) or 3123 (relating to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse), a person commits a felony of the 2nd degree when that person engages in sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse with a complainant without the complainant’s consent.

 

Sexual Assault is often the fall back charge the state will rely on when they cannot prove rape.  While rape requires something more than a mere lack of consent, sexual assault does not.  Defense of sexual assault cases is very fact specific but it more often than not relies on raising a reasonable doubt as to the lack of consent.

 

However, as with most criminal charges, the best defense can only be arrived at after careful consideration of all the details of the case with your attorney.
