Rape is defined as any sexual act directed against another person, forcibly and/or against that person's will: or not forcibly or against the person's will where the victim is incapable of giving consent (minors or incapacitated persons). Rape is generally considered one of the most serious sex crimes.
If the alleged victim of a rape claims he/she said no to any sexual intercourse, a person can be charged with rape. If you are found guilty of rape you can be charged with jail time, prison time, community service, counseling, probation, parole, and even lifetime sex offender registration.
If you have been charged with rape it does not mean that you are guilty. You have the right to a criminal defense lawyer who can defend against false charges, negotiate with prosecutors and present you case.
