Washington Date Rape Charges

Date rape is a crime involving forced or unwanted sexual activity that occurs within a dating relationship.  Where rape is typically charged in the absence of a personal or intimate relationship, date rape is appropriate for cases where the victim and the perpetrator knew one another of were involved in a relationship.  Date rape victims and perpetrators can be dating, friends, acquaintances, or could have dated in the past.  This type of sexual offense is called “date rape” because it frequently occurs during social interactions, such as a date. 

If you have been accused of committing date rape, a Seattle sex crimes defense lawyer can do a lot to help your case.  From your initial arrest to the courtroom, your attorney will be beside you every step of the way, providing you with superior legal advice and guidance.  As our lawyers know, date rape can be a difficult crime to prove because there tends to be a lack of physical evidence in these cases.  With date rape, it’s usually one person’s word against another’s, which isn’t exactly enough proof for judges and jurors to convict a defendant of this crime.  Your Seattle sex crimes defense attorney will be an important negotiator on your behalf, and will make arguments and present information that will highlight the lack of evidence in your date rape case.  Prosecutors must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed date rape, and your experienced and skilled lawyer will work hard to find ways of disproving this.

No matter what circumstances surround your date rape charges, your defense attorney will be very beneficial to the overall outcome of your case.  A date rape conviction could mean jail, fines, and sex offender registration, not to mention a criminal record.  Date rape convictions tend to ruin reputations, friendships, and other relationships, and you will want to avoid this at all costs.
