Charged with Date Rape in Riverside?

Riverside Criminal Defense Attorney

Date rape refers to forcible sexual intercourse against the will of the victim, where the two parties were voluntarily spending time together. This includes situations where the victim is unable to give consent, for example, due to unconsciousness. The name "date rape" comes from the fact that a date is a common situation in which this crime may occur. The fact of voluntary association is not a defense for date rape. If you have been accused of date rape, a Riverside criminal lawyer should be contacted immediately.

Date rape is a delicate and complex matter. There are, unfortunately, instances where someone consents to intercourse but then claims they did not. Or the parties involved may have genuinely different perceptions of what occurred between them. Many such factors can come into play and these require an attorney with advanced knowledge and experience of such cases.
