Overview of Rape Charges in Florida
Defense from a Miami Sex Crime Lawyer
There are few accusations more serious than rape. An arrest on rape charges
can change your life in an instant. An accusation of having committed
rape can damage your personal and professional reputation forever. If
convicted, based upon the circumstances of the charges, you could face
a prison sentence of 9 years. When the accusations involve a disabled
person, you a life sentence could be imposed upon you.
Rape cases most often involve two very different versions of events. Many
people have been accused of rape that were involved in a consensual act,
but the other individual involved later regretted the act, or other circumstances
led them to making accusations of rape. Contact a seasoned lawyer as soon
as you possibly can.
