Fort Myers Rape Attorney

Consent is the entire premise on which a rape charge is based. Rape, termed sexual battery in Florida statutes, is basically non-consensual sexual intercourse (including oral, anal, or vaginal intercourse or penetration). Non-consent from a person does not necessarily mean that they said "no" or fought back. A person who is unconscious or drugged cannot consent to sexual activity, and a person who is under the age of 18 cannot legally give his or her consent to sexual activity. The same applies to a person who has a mental disease or defect.

As such, a defense lawyer will need to prove that: sexual intercourse or penetration did not actually occur, the victim had an ulterior motive to make a false allegation of rape, or the victim actually gave consent. These are just three of the strategies a lawyer may employ in defending a client, and the actual defense strategy to be utilized will be determined only after a careful review of your particular charges and the evidence involved.
