How Does the Bail Bond Process Work for Rape Charges?

In California’s rape statute, Penal Code 261 PC, defines rape as “nonconsensual sexual intercourse accomplished by means of threats, force, or fraud, or with a victim who is unconscious or incapable of consenting”. Rape can be committed in a multiple of ways that include the following:
– Rape committed by physical force.
– A man having sexual intercourse with a woman who is incapacitated from alcohol consumption.
– A physician “tricking” his female patient into having sex with him under the pretenses that it is the cure for her particular illness.
– In the event a law enforcement officer instructs a woman that he has pulled over for DUI that he will let her go if she has sex with him.
 

Rape Related Crimes & Charges

– Spousal Rape – Penal Code 262 PC
– Date Rape
– Statutory Rape – Penal Code 261.5 PC
– Oral Copulation by Force – Penal Code 266c PC
– Forcible Penetration with a Foreign Object – Penal Code 289 PC
 

Rape Charge Consequences & Punishments

California rape punishments, penalties, and stigma that flow from a conviction can be severe. The punishment for rape in California can be three, six, or eight years in California state prison. If the alleged victim was a minor, the minimum sentence is seven years and the maximum is thirteen years. Rape is one of the most common crimes for which many innocent people get wrongly accused unfortunately. If you should find yourself in that predicament, there are a number of legal defenses that can help you beat the charge against you. These include taking the position that:
– A very common scenario in California rape cases; that the accuser made up false accusations.
– The accuser consented to intercourse and you have an honest and reasonable belief to that.
– There may have been some physical contact, but it fell short of actual intercourse.
– Insufficient evidence.
– You are the victim of mistaken identity.
