Rape & Felony Rape Laws
Rape is one of many sex crimes that are taken very seriously in a court of law. Rape refers to any form of sexual conduct forced on a person against their will through means of violence, menace, duress, fear of injury or other danger, and more.
In essence, rape is a non-consensual sexual activity, which means that if an alleged victim is unconscious and cannot give consent to the sex act, then he/she could claim they were raped.
Rape cases may be complex because of a number of mitigating circumstances including false accusations, media attention, and more. If you have been accused of rape, it is extremely important to seek legal counsel to ensure your rights and interests are fully protected.

Consequences of a Rape Conviction
Rape is considered a felony and if convicted, the defendant could face severe consequences including, but not limited to:
The likelihood of many of these punishments and penalties depends on the circumstances surrounding the rape case, including whether or not the accused has any prior convictions, is on parole or probation, the amount of media attention on the case, and the communities attitude about the crime.
The experienced criminal attorneys at Robert Poole Law can develop an innovative defense strategy to effectively improve the outcome of your case. Potential rape defenses may include the victim's consent, lack of evidence to support the case, factual evidence or mistaken identity, the use of polygraph tests, and more.
If you've been accused or charged with rape, do NOT attempt to investigate or defend your own case. It is in your best interest to retain competent and aggressive legal representation to ensure you rights and interests are protected every step of the way.
