Rape Indecent Liberties and Sexual Assault Defense

Rape, Indecent Liberties and Sexual Assault Defense

If you are facing felony charges of rape, sodomy, sexual assault, sexual battery or indecent liberties with a minor in Olathe, or any of the municipalities in Johnson County, Kansas, contact my Overland Park office immediately for experienced and aggressive Criminal Defense of Sex Offenses. I represent persons accused of charges ranging from forcible rape to sexual battery with a date or acquaintance. I also handle cases involving statutory rape, indecent liberties, and federal charges of child pornography or solicitation of sex with a minor over the Internet.

The term rape itself makes many people think of an evil stranger lurking in the bushes, awaiting the chance to prey upon an unsuspecting victim. While these cases do occur, most rape charges involve sexual contact between people who know each other or even live together.

Any kind of unwanted sexual contact, kissing, fondling, or sexual touching short of actual intercourse is a potentially serious sex offense charged as “sexual battery” or “sodomy”. Rape, meanwhile, requires actual and nonconsensual intercourse.

Whether you are charged with criminal sexual assault with a stranger, or instead face an accusation of coercive or aggressive sexual behavior from a date, a girlfriend, or even a spouse, I can help you. My experience with the investigation and presentation of evidence on issues of consent, resistance, or the defendant’s failure to break off a sexual encounter can help defend you against these charges both before and during trial.

I provide aggressive Criminal Defense of all charges in Johnson County, Kansas, Wyandotte County, Kansas, Jackson County, Missouri, and the entire Kansas City Metro Area including DeSoto, Gardner, Lenexa, Leawood, Mission, Merriam, Olathe, Overland Park, Prairie Village, and Shawnee.

In cases where the defendant denies any sexual contact, as in cases of mistaken identity, DNA evidence that links the defendant to the offense is crucial to the prosecution’s case against you. Any failure to secure a positive DNA match can often create the reasonable doubt necessary to compel a jury verdict of not guilty.

More complex cases arise in the date rape, acquaintance rape, or spousal rape cases where identity of the participants is not at issue, but the defendant raises the defense of consent. In these cases, superior cross-examination skills can make all the difference for the defense. Because of the critical nature of the credibility determinations that the jury is asked to resolve in these cases, it’s often necessary for the defendant to consider testifying in his own defense. This decision should not be made lightly or impulsively, but only with thorough preparation for the inevitable cross-examination to follow.
