Riverside Statutory Rape Lawyer

What is statutory rape in California?

Statutory rape refers to an act of non-forcible sexual penetration with an individual below the age of consent. In California, the age of consent is 18 years. If this act is committed with a child below 14 years of age, the crime is usually referred to as sexual assault. Statutory rape remains a crime whether or not the underage person claims to have given consent, as they are not legally capable of doing so.

Whether or not the crime is classified as a misdemeanor or felony is in part based on the age of the parties involved and the age difference between them. Harsher penalties are leveled at defendants 21 years of age or older. Penalties can involve fines, probation, imprisonment and mandated treatment services. If you have been accused of statutory rape, it is vital that you confer with a Riverside criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
