Statutory Rape Defense Considerations
As with all rape charges, charges of statutory rape must be taken very seriously. Statutory rape charges can result in severe penalties including prison time and lifetime registration as a sex offender. Sex offender registration is a social stigma that can permanently hinder your ability to find homes, find a job and form personal relationships.
It is important to understand that statutory rape can be reported by any person, not just the alleged victim. Often, these charges are made by the parents. Even if the girl does not wish to press charges or claims that sexual contact was consensual, prosecutors will often pursue these charges.
Family relationships and the fact that the alleged victim is a minor are factors that complicate statutory rape cases. In many cases, the accused may not have known that the girl was under 18, or her age may have been misrepresented to him. In either case, charges can still be filed.
There are many factors that go into the defense strategy of statutory rape charges. The Chase Law Group specializes in the defense of sexual offenses and has developed extremely successful strategies for defending statutory rape charges.

It is important to understand whether you are facing charges by a state or the federal government. Although the federal government can charge you with a crime for any violation of federal legal code, it typically focuses on major drug offenses, white collar crimes and cyber-crimes. Increasingly, the FBI has been engaging in sting operations designed to trap sex offenders, such as distributors of child pornography or charges for solicitation of minors over the Internet.
