Rape

Rape Defense Lawyer in Temecula

Fighting for the Arrested in Murrieta & Riverside County

Rape is one of the most serious sex crimes in the United States. The consequences include lengthy prison sentences, expensive fines, registration as a sexual offender, and permanent damage to your reputation and employment opportunities. The media and the public may already view you as guilty even before you even step foot in the courtroom.

If you were arrested and charged with rape, it is imperative to retain legal services from an experienced attorney. At the Law Office of Nicolai Cocis, we are dedicated to protecting the rights, future, and freedom of our clients facing rape and sexual assault charges.

With nearly two decades of experience, our Temecula rape defense lawyer has an extensive knowledge of California law to help guide you through the complexities of the legal system.

California Rape Law

California's rape statute, Penal Code 261 PC, ambiguously defines rape as nonconsensual sexual intercourse accomplished through threats, force, or fraud, or with a victim who is unconscious or incapable of providing consent. The punishment for rape includes a prison sentence of three, six, or eight years. However, a potential sentence can increase when the rape victim is a minor or if the defendant acted in concert with another person to rape the victim.

Looking at the Evidence Against You

Unfortunately, rape is one of those criminal offenses for which many innocent individuals get wrongly accused. Our Temecula rape defense lawyer can thoroughly investigate your case, gather evidence, and communicate with law enforcement and witnesses in order to develop an effective and personalized case strategy just for you. Do not hesitate to get the legal help necessary to get your life back on track.
