Riverside Sexual Assault Attorneys
Criminal Defense Lawyers in Southern California
Rape is classified as sexual intercourse without the consent of the other
person. Raped can be charged anytime someone withdraws consent to sexual
activity. What began as consensual sex can become rape if one person changes
his or her mind at any time.
When it comes to sex, only the people involved truly know what took place
between them—and even they can have widely different interpretations.
Misunderstandings of intent and consent can lead to allegations of rape.
If you are being accused of rape or sexual assault, discuss the specifics
of your case to learn your options and how to protect your future.
