Rape Lawyer in Miami, Florida

Rape is a type of sexual abuse that is done without the consent of the victim. It is a very serious crime that unfortunately a lot of people go through. In Florida, rape cases need to have three elements that they must meet to prove an actual crime has been committed. First, the victim has to be 12 years of age or older when the crime was committed. Then the defendant must have taken part in a sexual act with the victim without their consent.

Consequences & Defense for Rape Convictions in Florida

If convicted of a rape crime, the consequences are quite severe. The maximum prison time is 15 years and the minimum is around five, considering this is your first offense and you have no priors. There is also a chance of having to register as both a sexual predator and offender for the rest of your life which could affect your personal relationships, career, and your choice of residence.

Different than Molestation 

Rape is different than molestation because it isn’t a crime if the involved people are above the age of consent. It may be different than molestation, but the results are the same. A person who goes through an allegation of rape without a shred of proper evidence can struggle with depression, lose his/her job, and feel unnecessary guilt from society.

How to Defend Rape Charges?

If you are being persecuted for a crime you didn’t do, your innocence can be proven if:

  • The offender is the spouse of the defendant, rape charges are not applicable
  • The offender is performing medical care of the victim and doesn’t involve any contact with the private parts of the body for sexual purposes.
  • Evidence is necessary to prove the offender guilty. Good defense lawyers can find loopholes in the testimony of the victim.
  • Saying that the offender has done the act under high stress or depression can reduce your sentence.
