Understand the Charges Against You

Sex crimes are taken very seriously because of the severity of the charge. These often involve non-consensual sexual encounters, including charges of date rape. This term has been used to describe sexual acts that most often occurs after some drug or alcohol is used as a sedative to leave a victim tranquilized. This means they are unable to give consent.

Date Rape Statistics

When it comes to date rape, the statistics are alarming. They reveal a number of facts about these crimes that not many people know about or understand. We have seen numerous studies on the matter. Some even show that many are not aware of what constitutes as date rape.

The statistics involving date rape include the following:

  • 84% of women raped know their attackers
  • 75% of male and 55% of female students reported drinking or using drugs when the date rape occurred
  • Only 25 to 33% of women who were sexually assaulted and whose attack met the definition of rape considered themselves victims
  • A large number of date rape incidents go unreported

These statistics show that many do not fully understand what date rape is or how it is classified by its legal definition. Oftentimes, claims of date rape are falsified for various reasons, including a bad dating experience or some kind of revenge. It is important to make sure you have strong defense if someone is accusing you of date rape.
