Penalties for Rape

Rape is also termed sex assault, and is a felony offense. The charges are most often based upon a report from an alleged victim, who claims that a sexual act took place against his or her will. A rape conviction in our state can bring a fine of $2,000 to $5,000 and a prison sentence of 1 to 12 years. If it is alleged that the victim was injured or there were others involved in the sexual assault, the fines can increase to $5,000 to $1,000,000, and a prison sentence of 4 to 48 years.

Statutory rape charges may be filed if the victim was 20 years old or younger, and a conviction could lead to a fine of up to $500,000 and a prison sentence of up to 12 years, based upon the age of the victim. If you are convicted of rape you will be required to register as a sex offender, and your name, photo and address will be easily accessible to any person who searches for sex offenders in the area. You have the right to seek a criminal defense lawyer to help you fight back, and we urge you to get in touch with us on an immediate basis.

Our attorney could pursue various options, including actions seeking to have the charges dismissed, or negotiating a beneficial plea bargain. We will work tirelessly to help you pursue the best possible outcome. It may be necessary to prove that the sexual activity was in fact, consensual if you are being falsely accused, or that the person accusing you of rape failed to express that they did not want to engage in sexual activity.
