In a court of law, rape is one of many sex crimes that are taken extremely seriously. Rape is defined as a form of sexual contact forced on an individual against their will through means of menace, violence, duress, threat of harm or other danger, and more. Simply put, rape is a non-consensual sexual act, which could mean that if an individual was unconscious and did not give official consent to sexual contact, then he/she could say they were raped.
Rape cases may be complicated due to a variety of justifying scenarios including media attention, accusations that are not true at all, and more. If you are facing charges for rape, it is extremely crucial to seek legal representation to ensure your interested and rights are completely safeguarded.
