Understand What Constitutes Rape

One of our goals at David Lehr Law is to help you understand the law and the charges against you.
Under California Penal Code 261, rape is an act of sexual intercourse accomplished with a person not the spouse of the perpetrator, under any of the following circumstances:

A person is incapable, because of a mental disorder or developmental or physical disability, of giving legal consent, and this is known or reasonably should be known to the person committing the act.

Where it is accomplished against a person's will by means of force, violence, duress, menace, or fear of immediate and unlawful bodily injury on the person or another.

A person is prevented from resisting by any intoxicating or anesthetic substance, or any controlled substance, and this condition was known, or reasonably should have been known by the accused.

Where a person is at the time unconscious of the nature of the act, and this is known to the accused.

If you are accused of rape, statutory rape, sexual battery, sodomy or forcible oral or digital copulation, our outstanding legal team is ready to stand by your side.

Penalties for Rape

Rape is a felony crime that carries a sentence of three, six or eight years in a California state prison. If the victim suffers severe bodily harm, you face an additional three to five years. Other penalties include a $10,000 fine and a strike on your record.

We at David Lehr Law have extensive experience handling sex crimes. We know the effect a conviction can have on your life and we are prepared to use every resource at our disposal to defend you.
