Do you need an attorney?
Yes, absolutely. Rape charges are among the most serious charges in the State of Ohio. Not only is prison time possible (in some cases they can be life sentences without parole), the public accusation of a sex crime itself can set back a person’s reputation irreparably. It can affect everything in your life from your job to the custody of your kids.
A conviction can also lead to sex offender registration that can last a lifetime. If you are charged or even accused of rape, you need an attorney who has experience in sex offense defense. Get in touch right away to find what you can do right away to avoid negative impact to your reputation and your liberty. The consultation is free.
What is Rape in Ohio?
The Ohio Revised Code defines Rape in R.C. 2907.02:
“(A)(1) No person shall engage in sexual conduct with another who is not the spouse of the offender or who is the spouse of the offender but is living separate and apart from the offender, when any of the following applies...
(2) No person shall engage in sexual conduct with another when the offender purposely compels the other person to submit by force or threat of force.”
Rape can be charged in many instances, and sometimes only the word of an accuser is enough for law enforcement to charge the crime.
