Definition of Statutory Rape in the California Penal Code: Penal Code Section 261.5

Penal Code Section 261.5 defines Statutory Rape as sexual intercourse with an alleged victim under the age of eighteen.

The level of punishment depends on the age difference between the alleged victim and suspect. A prison sentence is made possible by the California sentencing where the difference in age is ten years or more. The other consequences from a Statutory Rape crime include probation or parole, sex offender registration for life, and substantial fines. It is of utter importance that you retain the legal services of an experienced lawyer who is a specialist in defending sex crime offenses.

Before charges are brought in court, we utilize a private investigator to interview witnesses right away and examine collected evidence. Our law firm has defended numerous cases which were rejected for prosecution because of proof problems.

If charges are already pending, we strive to provide an aggressive courtroom defense whether at the preliminary hearing or jury trial. We are tenacious in reaching our courtroom objectives of either having all charged dropped or reduced or securing an attractive case settlement. We have resolved numerous statutory rape cases with no jail time and no sex offender registration.

For our client’s convenience, our main office is located across the street from the Van Nuys Courthouse and Jail. Our other San Fernando Valley law offices are located in Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and Santa Clarita.
