Date Rape Defense

Serving Baltimore, Annapolis, Bel Air & Throughout Maryland

Date rape is a form of sexual assault involving unwanted sexual advances by force or threat of force with a man or woman who willingly went out on a date or other type of social occasion, but did not give consent for sex at any time. The victim usually knows the perpetrator and may have even had sex in the past. Nonetheless, date rape is a serious allegation with serious consequences. Many times, the victim alleges that some sort of drug was used in order to entice them into the sexual activity.

Maryland law does not distinguish between rape and date rape. What is important in these situations is the specific facts, including what can be proven and disproved. Very subtle and important issues may arise that create evidence depicting an entirely different view than with the victim is trying to create.

Date rape cases typically involve:

  • Date rape drugs: Many cases involve date rape drugs that can cause blackouts and were amnesia, as well as well-known sleep aid drug.
  • Prior sexual relationship: Date rape cases involve people who know each other in some fashion. Even a prior sexual relationship is no defense in the case of date rape charges.

A case involving threats, physical force, and lack of consent is very likely to result in a charge of first-degree rape with potential years in prison.
