Date Rape

Expert Date Rape Attorney

Date rape occurs when rape is committed by someone with whom the person has a relationship. The relationship can mean that the couple just met each other at a night club, they are on a date, or they have been friends for years. The duration of the relationship is not a big issue with the authorities. They only care that there was a relationship prior to the alleged rape.  

Date Rape allegations are often known to occur on college or university grounds and include the use of alcohol or drugs. The law in Michigan states that it is illegal to have sexual intercourse with a person who is incapable of consenting. If a person is intoxicated from a controlled substance or alcohol, he or she is unable to consent and may be unaware that a sexual act is occurring. It is a serious allegation and will necessitate an attorney that is experienced. 

In many instances, the act of rape happens and sometimes guilty people are rightfully convicted. On the other hand, innocent people are accused and convicted of date rape too.  

A person might allege date rape as an act of revenge toward the defended, regret the sexual act, or for material gains like money. As a result, you will want a well regarded and experienced attorney on your side.
