Rape Defense Lawyer in Richmond

Richmond Criminal Attorney for Rape Allegations

Rape is generally considered one of the most serious sex crimes that a person may be accused of committing. Also referred to as sexual assault, rape is generally defined as someone forcibly having sexual intercourse with another person without that other person's consent to do so. To be considered rape, the alleged victim did need to have said "no" or fought back; the mere lack of consent may be enough to charge someone with rape, depending on various other factors involved in the situation.

A person may face rape charges in Richmond, Virginia under any of the following circumstances:

  • Force
  • Violence
  • Threats of harm or injury
  • Fraud
  • A victim who was underage
  • A victim who was under the influence of alcohol or drug
