Douglas County Rape Defense Attorneys

Are You Facing Rape Charges in Metro Atlanta or Surrounding Areas?

Rape is one of the most serious sex crimes in Georgia. While it may be difficult to compare the severity of a crime like rape with that of child molestation, it is fair to say that rape is every bit as serious if not more so. Individuals who are charged with rape often find themselves facing intense societal judgment that may extend into the courtroom, and can potentially influence the outcome of a trial.

A Douglas County criminal defense lawyer should put in the necessary work to make sure that your case is handled as ethically as possible and that you are not subjected to unfair treatment as a result of your charges.

Rape laws in Georgia are quite succinct, which is a rather rare occurrence in terms of state law definitions and descriptions. These charges may be imposed by law enforcement when there is sufficient reason to believe that the accused offender engages in forcible intercourse with a victim against their will, or when the victim is less than 10 years of age.

Convicted offenders face some of the harshest penalties available in the entire criminal code. Prison terms of 25 years to life with or without parole may be imposed, and the death penalty is also an option in special circumstances.
