Date Rape

Our Farmington Hills Attorneys Are Michigan's Date Rape Defense Specialists When You Have Been Charged with an Alleged Assault

Date rape is frequently defined as nonconsensual sexual contact during a voluntary social engagement where the victim did not intend on sexual contact and resisted it. It is important to note that a victim does not have to physically resist to demonstrate lack of consent — an overly intoxicated person is legally incapable of giving consent.

The nature of sexual assault cases can be difficult for both the prosecution and defense because of “he said/she said” hearsay and conjecture. “Date rape” cases can get even more complicated when alcohol or drugs were being consumed prior to sex.

While many date rape situations occur between college students, it takes very little for a woman to make a claim that she has been raped. The “Me Too” movement has forced many police officers to simply take the word of the alleged rape victim. The “Me Too”movement has brought about a substantial increase in date rape claims. While many of these claims are unfounded, most of these individuals still get prosecuted.
