There are cases in which a person is falsely accused. Relationships can be highly emotional and volatile, leading one party to become jealous or angry and prompting a decision to report a crime that never occurred. Additionally, there are times when one parent will accuse the other of a sex crime in order to sway the court in a divorce or custody legal battle.
Penalties for a sex crime conviction will vary greatly, based upon the exact nature of the crime, whether or not violence played a part, if children were involved, and whether the accused has a prior criminal history.
Penalties can include a jail or prison sentence (including life in prison), expensive fines, probation, participation in counseling, and the requirement to register as a sex offender for life.

Was It A Question Of Consent?
You may be facing criminal accusations of date rape when it is alleged that you had sexual intercourse without the consent of the person accusing you of this offense. The alleged victim may be a person you were dating, or dated in the past, or any person who spends time with you voluntarily. The charge of date rape often boils down to just one person's word against another's, or "he said — she said." You may have actually had consensual sex, and then later the other party became angry or ashamed, and accused you of committing rape.
Defending Criminal Charges of Date Rape in Beverly Hills, CA
Two common examples of a date rape charge:
- Your partner is unable to refuse a sexual advance due to being intoxicated after consuming alcohol or drugs, even if the act appeared to be consensual.
- You secretly spiked your partner's food or drink with a drug that rendered the alleged victim incapable of resisting a sexual advance, and you had nonconsensual sex.
There are other examples of a how a date rape charge could be filed against an innocent person. A conviction includes the requirement to register as a sex offender, with long term repercussions. Your image, your address and the crime is available to any person who searches sex offenders in the area.
