Idaho Rape Charges

If you have been arrested and charged with rape it is important that you understand the charges against you and what your legal rights are. Call me to discuss your case, your options, and the potential outcomes.

It can be difficult to overcome the stigma and shame that surrounds any rape allegation. The community, the media, and law enforcement are often quick to make an assumption of guilt and attack the defendant's reputation before a single piece of evidence is ever presented. Unfortunately, when it comes to rape cases, the prevailing attitude is "guilty until proven innocent." This is why it is so important to hire an attorney who will stand by you and defend your rights, your reputation, and your presumption of innocence.

Under Idaho Code §18-6101, rape is forcible or non-consensual penetration. The facts and circumstances of each rape case are unique and will determine the options available and any potential punishments.

Innocent People Get Accused

Unfortunately, innocent people get wrongly accused of sex crimes in Idaho. False allegations can arise for many reasons including: anger, jealousy, or as part of divorce or child custody proceedings. Do not let your life and your reputation be dragged through the mud, fight to prove your innocence!
