Rape

Rape is a sex crime that can result in a lengthy prison term, rehabilitation, and lifetime registration as a sex offender. This is a violent crime, but the exact classification depends on the age of the victim, whether the victim sustained any injuries, and if a weapon was used in the commission of the crime. Regardless of what occurred at the time the crime was committed, it is imperative to have an experienced St. Paul sex crimes defense attorney representing you.

Knowledgeable Sex Crime Defense

There are many factors that can exist in a sex crime case. For instance, the alleged victim may have been younger than 13 years of age or more than three years younger than the defendant. This falls under statutory rape. Also considered statutory rape is when the alleged victim is between 13 and 15 years of age and the defendant is more than four years older.

A person can be charged with a sex crime if they are in a significant position, such as a teacher having a sexual relationship with a student.

The charges can also be aggravated if a weapon was used.
