Baltimore Rape Attorney
Rape and Serious Sex Crimes
Forced sexual intercourse against the victim's will using duress, menace, violence, use of a weapon or force is called rape. It may be committed by an acquaintance, someone close, or a stranger. Maryland law doesn't recognize date rape as a separate offense. Most sex crimes are felonies which can mean a long prison sentence and registration as a sex offender. With the frequency of sex crimes increasing and public pressure on police to effectively reduce these crimes, prosecutors are very aggressive about gaining convictions. If you or someone you know has been accused of rape, consult a
Baltimore criminal lawyer you can depend on to work for a positive outcome in your case.
