San Diego Rape Defense

Rape is the crime of having sexual intercourse without consent and accomplished through force, threat of violence or intimidation or with a girl who is underage. Rape can be charged after a man on man attack as well as a man on women. A woman can also be charged with rape in San Diego if she assists a man to rape another woman. Lack of consent includes saying “no” or being too drug-influenced or drunk for the woman to be able to either resist or consent.

Date Rape is also a rape charge, but involves both parties knowing each other prior to the uninvited sexual intercourse. Click Date Rape to see a more detailed definition.

Any sexual intercourse with a child is rape and in most states sexual relations even with consent involving a girl 14 to 18 (with some variation on ages in a few states) is “statutory rape,” on the basis that the female is unable to legally give consent. See pedophilia.

According to San Diego Police records, the number of rapes has increased 38 percent during the first six months of 2008, from 129 to 178 during the same period.
