Facts about Rape

Rape is a crime defined as the act of forcible sexual intercourse by physically forcing the victim, or threatening them with injury or other duress. In order to convict an alleged offender of rape, some form of sexual penetration must occur, regardless of how slight it is. The most common form of this crime is forcibly raping a victim by means of violence or threats of violence. Statutory rape is defined as sexual intercourse with a minor younger than the state’s age of consent. In California, the age of consent is 18 so it would be illegal to have sexual intercourse with anyone below 18.

Rape laws and age of consent vary from state to state, sometimes greatly. That is why it is important to have a knowledgeable and skilled San Bernardino rape defense attorney in your corner. We have a comprehensive understanding of the laws, procedures, paperwork, and policies associated with rape in California. You can sleep well at night knowing the well-informed legal team at Law Offices of John D. Lueck are taking care of you and your defense.

Under California state laws, rape may occur if:

  • In the process of sexual intercourse, the defendant used duress, intimidation, physical force or threats to cause the act.
  • The victim lacked the ability to consent, such as if they were intoxicated, have a physical disability, or have a developmental disability.
  • The victim was asleep, unconscious, or not aware that the sexual assault was taking place.
  • The victim only gave consent out of fear of injury to their body or out of fear of injury to another.
  • The defendant caused the sexual intercourse by making false representations.

Since rape laws vary from state to state and have different criteria for what constitutes rape, it is important that you have a San Bernardino rape defense lawyer who knows what they’re doing. Call us at (909) 341-1032 for a free case evaluation.
