Understanding Rape Charges in Ohio
Convictions of rape can result in serious punishments, including:
- Registration as a sex offender
- Permanent criminal record
- Hefty fines
- Possible life imprisonment
Under Ohio Revised Code § 2907.02, a person can be charged with rape if they allegedly engage in sexual conduct against the will of another person using force or threat of force.
Allegations of rape are based on the testimony of the supposed victim, rather than substantial evidence. You will, therefore, need a strong legal guide by your side to aggressively defend your case. At Bleile, Witte & Lape, we can fight for your rights and develop a strong case strategy in pursuit of a reduction or dismissal of the rape charges lodged against you.
