Baltimore Sexual Assault Defense Lawyers

Serving Annapolis, Bel Air & throughout Maryland

Sexual assault includes much more than rape charges. It can be any sexual act forced upon a person who did not give their consent to said acts. In Maryland, sexual acts include most forms of sex, with the possibility of years behind bars.

There are many different types of sex assault cases, which include:

  • Rape – Rape is generally defined as vaginal intercourse by a threat of force and without consent. It usually gives rise to the most serious of punishments if you are convicted of this charge.
  • Oral sex – These are classified as sexual offense cases and include all types of oral sex. The seriousness of the offense rises in proportion to any threat of force, the presence of a weapon, the absence of consent and the age of the participants.
  • Statutory rape – A statutory rape charge hinges on the age of the participants. In Maryland for example, a 19-year-old boyfriend could be charged with statutory rape 15-year-old girlfriend.
  • A person in a position of authority – A fourth-degree misdemeanor charge, this is for example where a teacher or coach, who exercises supervision over a minor and has sex with that minor.

Any kind of sex crime is serious business. Prosecutors want to punish for an alleged crime to the full extent of the law. But you don’t necessarily deserve the kind of punishment, especially the situation where two people in a relationship consent to sex.
