Baltimore Date Rape Attorney

What is date rape?

Date rape is a descriptive term used to differentiate between rape as a result of an attack and a forced or non-consensual sexual intercourse between people who are together socially. Date rape drugs may be used to render the victim unable to resist. In some cases it occurs after some alcohol has been consumed. Not all cases of this type of sexual assault are reported to the authorities and not all of the cases reported were factually non-consensual. The penalties for sex crimes in Maryland are harsh and prosecutors are aggressive in seeking convictions. If you or a loved one has been accused of date rape don't wait for an arrest to happen, waste no time in talking with a Baltimore criminal defense lawyer who can help to protect your rights.

The seriousness of this offense should not be underestimated. That there was a prior close relationship or previous sexual activity is not a defense. If it is alleged that date rape drugs such as Rohypnol, GHB, or Ketamine were used you may face additional charges. False allegations of date rape may be made for various reasons. The alleged victim may experience "morning after remorse" for what was a consensual act or may be seeking revenge for some reason. The penalties for a conviction include imprisonment, fines, probation, and mandatory registry as a sex offender. Any sex offense carries with it a stigma which may adversely affect your personal relationships, your employment, and your professional relationships. A trusted date rape lawyer can investigate the circumstances, examine the evidence against you, interview potential witnesses and work to protect your legal rights as well as help to minimize the damage to your reputation.

Sex crime defense is a complex area as very often it comes down to "he said- she said". With so much at stake, you need a veteran criminal defense lawyer on your side that has the investigatory capability, a host of expert witnesses and is ready to use every bit of legal expertise on your behalf.
