Statutory Rape Defense Attorney: Overland Park

Have you been charged with statutory rape? Statutory rape is a strict liability crime, which means, it does not matter what the minor told you his or her age was. Even if the minor lied and told you that he or she was 18, if you had intercourse with someone under the age of 16, you committed rape. If you are charged with statutory rape or other sex crime, don't talk to law enforcement or volunteer DNA or other evidence until you speak with a lawyer.

If you are convicted of statutory rape, the consequences are severe. In addition to facing substantial prison time, you also have to register with the sex offender registry. This results in serious prohibitions on your career, and your life that will impact where you work (can't work in a school or around children, can't become an attorney or other licensed professional) and where you live (can't live by a school or day care). Your name will be part of a sex offender website that alerts everyone that you are a sex offender and tells them where you live.

Sex with a minor is a serious offense, with perpetual repercussions. There will always be a social stigma against you. Even if you are found innocent or the charges are dismissed, people will undoubtedly judge you negatively. I try to prevent my clients' cases from going public by aggressively telling their side of the story before any charges are filed against them. But, if charges are filed, I will aggressively defend their constitutional rights.

Jessica's Law and Statutory Rape

If you are over the age of 18 and have a sex with someone under the age of 14, Jessica's Law allows you to be sentenced for life, even if you have no prior history of sexual offenses. The consequences are severe and you need someone on your side to protect your freedom.
