Rape

The Sexual Offences Act 2003 brought in a complete overhaul on the law surrounding Sexual Offences. With complex law relating to consent and the rules of evidence it is important to seek expert advice immediately. MK Law has a wide range of experienced lawyers able to deal with such matters to ensure the best result for you.

Rape is serious crime requiring an intentional sexual act against another person (specifically the penetration of the vagina, anus or mouth with the penis) without their consent. Consent has been the subject of a great deal of debate and can often prove to be very confusing. For example, it is possible for a person to consent at first but then withdraw their consent during an act, this will still constitute Rape.

Due to the serious nature of an allegation of Rape, it may only be tried in the Crown Court. A sentence of life imprisonment is open to the Court depending on the circumstances of the offence and additionally an offender may be asked to sign the Sex Offenders Register and follow the terms of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).
