Indiana Law and Sex Offenses

Criminal Sexual Acts: The Risks
Under Indiana law, a person who knowingly or intentionally has sexual intercourse with another person that is compelled by force or imminent threat of force, or the person is unaware that the act is occurring or is mentally disabled will be filed as a level 1 felony offense, punishable with 20 to 40 years in prison and fines up to $10,000. You simply cannot risk entering a courtroom on a sexual assault charge without the support of a highly experienced trial lawyer. You risk losing your freedom, reputation, professional licensing, and will face a life as a registered violent sex offender once released.
Sex crime accusations can be made with no basis in reality. A person may accuse another of rape or sexual assault after a consensual act, or to damage you or your reputation. If you are innocent of the charges, don’t assume that it is a matter of course that you will be found not guilty. The verdict in your case will be the result of the hard work and dedication of your defense attorney. Get in touch with us at Trapp Law, LLC, for a free consultation at once.
