Virginia Beach Sodomy Crime Defense Attorney

Virginia’s Forcible Sodomy Laws

Sodomy has been a hot topic amongst Virginia lawmakers for years. Numerous changes have been made to the laws surrounding this offense and it can be confusing to determine what is, and what isn't, legal according to state law.

Currently, forcible sodomy is charged when the accused forces to victim to engage in one or more of the following acts:

  • Cunnilingus
  • Anilingus
  • Fellatio
  • Anal intercourse

A serious offense that is charged as a felony, and carries mandatory sex offender registration, forcible sodomy charges should be handled by an experienced Virginia Beach criminal defense attorney. That is exactly what you'll find at McCormack & McCormack. Our legal team has been fighting a wide range of sex crimes for more than 45 years and continues to excel, as evidenced by our many client testimonials.

Understanding the Details of Sodomy Charges

The basis of a forcible sodomy charge is that the accused acted by means of intimidation, threat, or sheer force. In other words, the victim did not consent to the sexual acts that occurred. While any forcible sodomy charge is serious, there are certain factors that can heighten the penalties for a conviction.

Aggravating factors that will be taken into consideration include:

  • If the victim was in a state of physical helplessness or mental incapacity
  • If the victim is under 13 years of age
  • If the victim is under 13 years of age and the accused is more than three years older
  • If the accused kidnaps, abducts, or beats the victim at the time of the offense

If found guilty of forcible sodomy, the accused must serve a minimum of five years in prison. The addition of any of the above factors can result in more serious penalties, possibly up to life in prison. You deserve legal protection from a team committed to your best interests – you deserve McCormack & McCormack on your side.
