Date Rape Charges in Baltimore, MD

Maryland law does not distinguish among rape versus date rape. The alleged facts are what matter in every case. Most sexually violent crimes usually occur between people who know each other. In fact, a sexual assault allegation against a complete stranger is extremely rare.

What is Date Rape?

Date rape is a form of sexual assault involving unwanted sexual advances by force or threat of force. These cases involve an allegation that a man or woman first willingly went out on a date or other type of social gathering but did not give consent or agree to have sex. The victim knows the perpetrator and the two may have engaged in sexual relations in the past. Nonetheless, date rape is a serious allegation with serious consequences.

The date rape allegations often include the use of alcohol or other drugs. Some of these cases even involve an allegation that a date rape drug was used to commit the offense.

  • Date rape drugs. Many cases involve date rape drugs like Rohypnol (“roofies”) that can cause black-outs and amnesia, as well as the well-known sleep-aid Ambien and others.
  • Prior sexual relationship. Typically, date rape cases involve people who know each other. Even a prior sexual relationship is no defense in the face of date rape charges.

A case involving threats, physical force, and/or the lack of consent (either through the use of date rape drugs or not), is very likely to result in first-degree rape charges with years in prison if the case results in a conviction.
