Rape/Sexual Assault: California Penal Code 261

Sexual Assault, or rape. is one of many sex crimes that are taken very seriously in a court of law. Rape refers to any form of sexual conduct forced on a person against their will through means of violence, menace, duress, fear of injury or other danger, and more.

In essence, rape is a non-consensual sexual activity, which means that if an alleged victim is unconscious and cannot give consent to the sex act, then he/she could claim they were raped. Rape cases may be complex because of a number of mitigating circumstances including false accusations, media attention, and more. If you have been accused of rape, it is extremely important to seek legal counsel to ensure your rights and interests are fully protected. Please contact us today to speak with a qualified criminal lawyer at The Law Offices of David S. Chesley, Inc. who can evaluate your case FREE of charge and determine the best course of action for you.

Consequences of a Rape Conviction

Rape is considered a felony and if convicted, the defendant could face severe consequences including, but not limited to:

  • Imprisonment
  • Loss of certain rights
  • Mandatory registration as a sex offender
  • Compulsory HIV/AIDS testing
  • Court ordered rehab
  • Large fines

The likelihood of many of these punishments and penalties depends on the circumstances surrounding the rape case, including whether or not the accused has any prior convictions, is on parole or probation, the amount of media attention on the case, and the communitys attitude about the crime.
