The crime of "rape" (or "first degree sexual assault" in some states) generally refers to non-consensual sexual intercourse that is committed by physical force, threat of injury or other duress. In some states, this charge can refer to any type of sexual activity, not necessarily intercourse.
Rape Defense Considerations
The charge of rape is part of a class of related charges that may be made based on the circumstances of the case. If there is a prior relationship between the accused offender and the victim, a charge of date rape or marital rape may be made. If the prosecution's case is not believed to be strong enough to get a rape conviction, a lesser but still serious charge of sexual assault may be made.
Charges of rape are often based largely on the testimony of the accuser and defendant. Often, there are no material witnesses or physical evidence. In the case of date rape, the accuser may even be the spouse of the defendant.
In such cases, the preparation of one's defense requires careful pre-trial investigative work. Often, criminal history, psychological profiles, possible motives, character witnesses and other circumstantial information can be obtained to keep these cases from going to trial.
Rape charges can be difficult to prove. An aggressive, skilled defense and early intervention can be quite effective in these cases.
