Beverly Hills Sex Crimes Lawyer

Under California law rape is generally defined as sexual penetration without the consent of your partner.

Further, if your partner is intoxicated to the point that they may not be able to affirmatively consent you may be charged with the crime of rape. There are several different types of rape, including date rape, spousal rape and statutory rape. Spousal rape is sexual penetration without the consent of your spouse and statutory rape is sex with a person under 18 years of age, whether they consented or not. California law provides that any person under 18 cannot, by a matter of law, consent to sexual activity.
