Statutory Rape

Were You Accused Of Statutory Rape?

Are you or a loved one facing criminal charges of sexual intercourse with an underage individual? In Ohio, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor is if an individual has engaged in intercourse with a minor between 12 to 16 years. If the minor was under the age of 13, the offense is generally classified as a sexual imposition or gross sexual imposition, depending on the case details.

Statutory Rape Charges Can Be A Misunderstanding

A young person may face charges of statutory rape even if they are close in age to the alleged victim. The two may be involved in a committed relationship, but this defense is often not acceptable to prosecutors. There is also the issue of false accusations, which may be the product of malicious family members or other interested parties.
