Understanding Rape Accusations
Taking sexual advantage of another individual against his or her will or without that person's consent is considered rape. Even being accused of this sex crime can have a heavy negative impact on your both your personal and professional life. It is not unheard of for an innocent individual to be facing charges of rape and having to deal with the devastating consequences of a felony criminal charge.

My firm has a reputation for a high level of trial abilities, and can fight to protect your reputation and fight to shield you from the negative consequences of a rape conviction.
Under § 265, 13B, Indecent assault and battery on child under fourteen can lead to up to 10 years in state prison, with a minimum of 2 ½ years as punishment . Any sex crime involving underage victims are punished very heavily by the court system. Those who are accused of date rape, or cases in which the alleged victim has asserted that they were drugged prior to the sexual act taking place, can face not less than 10 years in state prison if convicted.
After serving a prison term, as a registered sex offender, you will find it increasingly difficult to live a normal life. Whenever a potential employer, landlord, college admissions department, or bank loan officer performs a background check on you, he or she will see that you were convicted of this sex crime. A rape conviction will also limit the number of jobs available to you, as you may be restricted from being involved in any profession involving minors. Law enforcement will also make your personal information, including photo and home address, available to the public at large on websites for that purpose .
