If you are being investigated for, or charged with, rape it is absolutely vital that you seek specialist help without delay.  Our rape solicitors will be able to help – do not wait to be charged.

 

Rape
Contrary to Section 1, Sexual Offences Act 2003

This offence is committed when a person intentionally penetrates another person’s vagina, anus or mouth with their penis when the other person did not consent to the penetration and when the defendant did not reasonably believe that the complainant was consenting

 

How Can You Fight A Rape Allegation?

If you are charged with rape, you will need urgent help from specialist rape solicitors.

If any of the above elements are not present in the alleged incident, then you should plead not guilty.

For example, if penetration is accidental, rape has not been committed.

Most rape cases focus on the issue of consent, and this will need to be considered in some detail by your rape solicitors before you are advised as to how you should plead to this charge.  The steps you had taken to determine whether the complainant was consenting will be considered in relation to how reasonable your belief of consent was.

Rape victims can be male or female, but only males can be charged with rape.  Females can be charged as secondary parties.

Alternative sexual offence charges include attempted rape, assault by penetration, sexual assault or causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.

The maximum penalty for rape is life imprisonment, so it is vital that you seek specialist help immediately from rape solicitors.
