Rape is defined as non-consensual sexual intercourse that is committed by violence or the threat of violence. In situations of date rape, the victim generally knows his or her attacker, but has not consented to sexual intercourse with that person. Drugs and alcohol are usually involved in situations of date rape. Because of the violent and often demeaning nature of these crimes, it is important to contact a sexual assault lawyer as soon as possible. A skilled sex crimes attorney may be able to get rape charges dropped before the case ever goes to trial.

In situations of forcible rape (when force or the threat of force is used to coerce a person to have sexual intercourse), the victim is less likely to know his or her attacker. Drugs or alcohol may be involved, but the attacker generally has knowledge of, and may have even planned, the attack. Because forcible rape is a crime of violence as much as it is a sexual crime, consequences can be extremely serious. It is absolutely necessary to have a knowledgeable sexual abuse attorney if you have been accused of forcible rape. The sexual abuse lawyers affiliated with America's Criminal Defense Group are familiar with the different laws in many states that may affect the outcome of your case.

This can result in a wrongful conviction for rape unless a defendant has an experienced lawyer who has the skill, knowledge, and expertise necessary to mount a strong, aggressive defense. The critical factor between a conviction or an acquittal (or a complete dismissal) of a case is usually the quality and strength of the defense.
