Protection Against Charges Of Date Rape

Date rape and similar offenses are a serious concern for millennials (and, of course, for everyone else as well). Hooking up has never been easier. Strangers meet strangers after exchanging little more than a flirtatious message or two on their phones. The outcomes can be unpleasant or uncomfortable — in rare situations, dangerous or regrettable.

Increasingly, dating apps are leading to allegations of date rape. Nobody makes such a charge frivolously. Yet research and case histories alike have shown that false claims are far from infrequent. Alcohol and other substances can muddy one's memory, and pictures of a night's proceedings are often unclear.

The lawyers at Conaway & Strickler P.C. offer legal representation to individuals who have been falsely accused of date rape. We understand the ambiguity inherent in many such cases, and work hard to gather the adequate information and evidence that helps our clients achieve their legal goals. With headquarters in Atlanta, we serve throughout the region and stand prepared to assist.

Protecting Your Reputation And Your Future

As with all types of sex offenses, a charge of date rape can do serious harm to your reputation, your career and your future. Indeed, many individuals feel sentenced even before they've been convicted. College students are ostracized by their peer groups. Neighbors, co-workers and family are quick to turn their backs on the accused. Social isolation is its own prison.

The legal penalties following conviction, meanwhile, are also severe. Offenders face imprisonment and steep court fines. Most will be compelled to register as sex offenders, which limits their housing and employment options. It is no mystery why many have observed that a sex crime conviction will follow individuals throughout their entire lives.

We can help. Our lawyers are skilled at defending clients both in and outside of the courtroom. Working through the legal system, we are adept at minimizing the penalties that individuals face. Whenever possible, we will seek to have a case dismissed outright.
