Rape

Being charged with a rape offense or sexual assault is very serious. In Philadelphia, sexual assault charges can mean several different things. In some cases, husbands have been accused by their wives of rape. Sometimes, the victim and the accused are acquainted. Other times, the two are completely unknown to each other.

The extent of the victim’s and the accused’s relationship will not determine whether or not the District Attorney files sexual assault charges. The determining factor will be whether or not the victim was forced in some way to engage in sexual activity. The force may be due to a weapon or because of a verbalized threat. If the victim was too intoxicated to decline the accused’s sexual advances, this can constitute sexual assault charges. If the accused is an adult and the victim is a minor, this can lead to statutory rape charges.

Sexual Assault Attorney in Philadelphia

Sexual assault charges can affect those accused for the rest of their lives. For example, in Philadelphia, someone convicted of statutory rape can be required to register as a sex offender, not to mention the possible long prison sentence that will be required when convicted in a court of law. Those accused of a rape offense need an aggressive attorney to fight for them from the beginning, and Mark D. Hauser is exactly that attorney.

Whether the sexual assault charges are for forcible rape, date rape, rape between spouses or statutory rape, Mark D. Hauser will use a different approach for defending the accused. It begins with an initial meeting with this attorney when the accused will have a chance to tell their versions of the events. Next, Mr. Hauser will obtain the evidence that has been gathered in the case in order to do his own investigation.

During the investigation, Mark will interview the witnesses. If these witnesses have important information that will aid his clients’ cases, these witnesses will receive subpoenas to appear in court. These actions help the attorney to discover when people are being deceitful, and this will help the case. The other side will vigorously launch a case against those accused of a rape offense, and the defense needs to take the charges seriously.
