If You've Been Charged with Rape in Los Angeles, the Next Move You Make is Crucial.
Rape is considered one of the most serious personal crimes, and if you are convicted, it can have a massive affect on your life, your future, and your freedom. You need aggressive legal representation from a winning defense lawyer to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
There are several ways to fight a rape accusation, and we have a lot of experience. Some of the most common defense strategies a rape defense lawyer may advocate include: consent, tainted or insufficient evidence, or mistaken identity. If the accused individual and the victim know each other, consent will be the criminal defense lawyer's primary question.
Sometimes an individual may falsely accuse someone, deliberately or unintentionally, which may often be the case in rape accusations. If the accused and the victim do not know each other, the rape defense attorney will probably note the likelihood of mistaken identity.
Furthermore, a criminal defense lawyer may believe that the police used entrapment, which occurs when police convince an individual to commit a crime that he or she did not intend to commit.
