RAPE CHARGES AND SENTENCING

Rape is a felony, and if convicted, requires certain minimum and maximum sentences. The exact sentence will be determined by the courts in consideration of aggravating or mitigating factors. The defendant’s prior record will also be taken into account. In cases where sentencing occurs, the Robinson Law Firm, P.A. will strategically present your case in an attempt to obtain leniency or negotiate with the prosecution.

Avoiding a conviction is, of course, the prime objective of your defense and the Robinson Law Firm will fight in pursuit of this outcome. Many points can be looked into which may lead to charges being dismissed or an acquittal. Lack of evidence or inadmissible evidence is a fundamental point of address. Evidence in favor of the defendant, including proof of consent, can sometimes be obtained. It may be found that you were charged due to an instance of mistaken identity or an investigation of motives may reveal the accuser is making false statements due to jealousy, to protect their own reputation or for other reasons.

At the Robinson Law Firm we also represent clients in date rape and statutory rape cases. It is our intent to protect you from the penalties and stigma that come with a rape conviction and to see that your rights are upheld.
