Consent Is Not a Defense to Statutory Rape

Statutory rape is generally defined as sexual intercourse by an adult with a person below a statutorily designated age. Under the law, the underage person is incapable of consenting to sex so you could be convicted of statutory rape even if the underage person consented to the sexual contact and you did not force the person.

Have You Been Charged With Statutory Rape?

Statutory rape is a serious crime and in most states it is considered a felony, which means, if you are convicted, you could be facing serious punishment including jail. There are legal defenses to the charge, however, so don’t delay, contact a Salt Lake City statutory rape defense attorney to help you with your case.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances – such as being charged with a crime – where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How to Find the Right Attorney

Common legal terms explained

Pro se – This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
