If you’ve been charged with rape, your future is on the line. Contact a Pennsylvania based rape attorney today to start working on your defense.
Rape is a crime that is considered to have “zero tolerance” in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and those who are charged and convicted of rape stand to face extremely harsh penalties. If a Pennsylvania court finds you guilty of rape, you could spend the rest of your life behind bars. You could also be ordered to pay significant fines, attend counseling or perform community service. You may even be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of your life, which can affect all aspects of your life, including where you are allowed to live and work.
How To Defend Yourself Against Rape Charges With The Help Of A Pennsylvania Based Rape Attorney
Often, rape charges are the result of mistaken identity or false accusations. Many rape cases have simply been an attempt by the “victim” of the crime to control, manipulate or punish the alleged perpetrator. Since most rape cases don’t have any witnesses, it is usually your word against theirs. This is why it is so important to have a criminal defense attorney who has the foresight and ability to search for evidence that supports your innocence, or to examine the motives of the accuser.
At the Law Firm of Schrom & Shaffer, P.C., we will investigate your case fully to determine if your identity was mistaken or the accuser has ill motives against you. Our goal is to see the charges against you dropped entirely!
