How Do I Defend Myself Against Rape Charges?
Criminal charges in Michigan that involves sexual act or violence (criminal sexual conduct or CSC) carries the most serious and devastating consequences. If you or someone you know is charged with a sex crime, you must contact a Michigan sex crimes lawyer immediately to determine the best way to defend yourself.
And to be able to defend yourself effectively against rape charges, you must take the rape allegations very seriously. Even if you feel that you are wrongfully accused and the allegations sounds or looks ridiculous, you must still prove your innocence on the court of law.
Defending yourself against sex crime charges
People who are accused of sex crime or criminal sexual conduct in Michigan use one of two best possible defenses:
You may establish your innocence by showing or demonstrating the reasons and evidences why there’s no way that you could have committed the crime. Presenting an alibi like someone is with you and you are nowhere near the victim when the alleged crime took place is a good defense. The person with you can testify that he or she is indeed with you and not with the alleged victim at the time of the supposed crime. And if you are by yourself when the alleged crime took place, you may present receipts with time stamps, other documentation and any type of evidence that can prove your whereabouts at the time of supposed sex crime. Photo and video evidence can also stand and could be really useful in proving your innocence. If you can give more than enough evidence or proof, you can be acquitted in no time.
Another way to defend yourself against rape charge is the defense of consent. If you can prove that you and the alleged victim mutually agreed to to the deed or you both engaged in a consensual sexual activity, the sex crime charge may be dropped in no time. But, proving consent is not that easy especially if the alleged victim won’t cooperate or won’t admit that he or she consented to sexual activity. However, you can still defend yourself by establishing your relationship with the alleged victim. Presenting evidences that shows the alleged victim’s willingness to to the deed can help. But if the alleged victim is a minor or incapacitated, you won’t be able to use this kind of defense effectively.
