Virginia Beach Rape Defense Lawyer

What is Rape?

Under § 18.2-61, the commonwealth of Virginia defines rape as:

  • Sexual intercourse that occurs against the one person's will, regardless of whether or not the victim was a spouse.
  • If any force, threats or intimidation was used without consent, it will be considered rape.
  • A person will also be charged with rape if intercourse occurred with a child under the age of 13.

At McCormack & McCormack, we believe that everyone deserves legal protection, regardless of the circumstances under which they were charged with a crime. Whether you have been falsely accused or mistreated, our firm is here to help. We can provide you with the legal counsel you need for your case. If you have been charged with a sex crime, such as statutory rape, retain a Virginia Beach criminal defense attorney right away. Having skilled legal protection is crucial to ensuring that your rights are protected.

What are the Penalties for Rape?

If convicted, the minimum penalty will include five years in a state correctional facility. An individual may also be forced to pay certain fines, depending on the final conviction. State laws may require individuals convicted of rape or statutory rape to register as sex offenders, as well.

Will I be required to register as a sex offender?

If you are convicted of a sex crime, you could face more than just jail time or fines. You could be forced to register as a sex offender, never escaping the label of your conviction. Your name, address and crime information will be filed. The community you live in will be able to access this information, and some registries might even be posted in public places. For this reason, it is important that you enlist legal support that you can depend on. If are facing charges for a sex crime, be sure to contact a criminal defense lawyer from our firm as soon as possible. We are prepared to provide you with the aggressive defense that you deserve, regardless of the circumstances.
