Rape & Date Rape

Rape is a strong word that is used in a wide range of situations. While people typically think of violent attacks, rape can be charged in situations where the two individuals knew each other, were already sexually involved or were even married to each other. It can apply to older teenagers having sex with someone a few years younger. It can apply to a drunk misunderstanding.

The consequences for a rape conviction are serious. In addition to potential jail time, you will be required to file on the sex offender registry — visible to the public.

Rape allegations can be difficult to defend. The case may become a “he said, she said” situation. Other cases may involve DNA or other strong circumstantial evidence. However, as a former Nassau County Assistant District Attorney, Peter E. Brill understands how the prosecution approaches these cases. Our law firm works to challenge the evidence against you and locate the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We handle all forms of rape defense cases, including:

  • Date rape
  • Marital rape/spousal rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Child rape
  • Forcible rape

Each situation is different, and we build defenses tailored to each client’s specific needs. Our New York City sex crimes defense attorneys work hard to develop effective strategies.

  • We utilize DNA experts to challenge the validity of any DNA evidence.
  • When a case lacks DNA evidence, we use this fact to our client’s advantage.
  • We listen to our client’s story. Was the act consensual?
  • Did the police violate our client’s rights by coercing a confession?
  • Was the accuser known for making false accusations?
