Hire a Sacramento Sex Crime Attorney
Due to the violent nature of sexual assault and rape, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges, and juries are never very lenient towards individuals accused of these offenses. Rape entails performing a sexual act against an individual's will or without his or her consent. Because a crime of this magnitude can cause immense emotional and physical harm, a guilty conviction carries very severe penalties.
Penalties for rape convictions include large fines, years in prison, and a mandatory registration as a sex offender. If you stand accused of rape, you should hire a Sacramento criminal defense lawyer immediately. A skilled and knowledgeable attorney will be able to mediate the damages and help you fight to have your charges dropped or your sentence reduced.
Rape accusations can elicit very extreme reactions in most people. Even if you are entirely innocent of the charges leveled against you, even the mere accusation of rape is enough to destroy your reputation, ruin your career, and irreparably damage your personal relationships. With so much stigma attached to rape, it is not surprising that innocent individuals receive a guilty conviction.
Rape cases rely very heavily on the testimony of the alleged victim. Without the confident guidance of a skilled and knowledgeable defense attorney you may run the risk of being falsely convicted based off of an untrue or false testimony.
