Date Rape

Aggressive, Knowledgeable New York Date Rape Attorney for Your Defense

Even if you haven’t been formally charged yet, it’s really important to talk with a date rape attorney if you believe you may be named as a date rape suspect. You won’t be judged at the Law Office of Mark Sacco. Instead, we’ll explore strategies for your defense with you, and we’ll advise you of your best course of action in our estimation. Date rape charges often amount to “he said” versus “she said” scenarios. Whether or not intercourse or penetration took place is less of an issue than the question of consent. In true “dating” situations, prospective partners spend extended time together, creating many opportunities for sexual contact to occur.

What is Date Rape?

Forced sex acts are termed “rape” or “sexual assault.” Consensual acts between adults are not usually criminal acts. Were you charged with date rape when in fact you feel sure your date agreed to the sexual contact in question? Or do you have a suspicion that a sex partner may accuse you of date rape after the fact?  You may feel the laws aren’t on your side in a date rape case.

Protect Yourself and Your Rights by Consulting a Seasoned Date Rape Attorney

Rape allegations have been known to be fabricated. They may be a product of the complainant’s regret, or else the need for revenge or attention. The laws are intended to protect the innocent and punish the guilty, but rape cases often walk a fine line when it comes to consent. Protect yourself and your rights by consulting a seasoned  criminal defense attorney who is well versed in the date rape laws in New York.
