Protect Your

Freedom Reputation Job Rights

Unfortunately, some people may use the severe charge of rape as a weapon to exact revenge, obtain power or cause harm to another person. Even if the person falsely charged is ultimately found not guilty, the repercussions of such a false accusation can be disastrous.

A false rape accusation can destroy a person’s life. Whether the charge was made out of malice or mistaken identity, the reality remains that an innocent person is currently facing trial for a crime they did not commit.

What To Do If Someone Accuses You of Rape

Your future could be at risk if you have been wrongfully accused. Therefore, as with any criminal case, you must hire a criminal defense lawyer who can represent you to protect your reputation and your rights.

With over twenty years of experience representing clients in criminal defense cases in Atlanta, attorney Jeff Manciagli can provide the representation you need to have your criminal charges dropped or reduced.

The lawyer you choose should be someone you feel at ease with. Aside from that, there are other things you can do to support your case.

Consider Your Actions Carefully and Avoid the Accuser

A careless comment can have unintended consequences. Avoid making any rash statements on your social media accounts.

You should stay far away from the person accusing you of rape. Learning that you have been charged with rape will likely cause you to become upset and angry. However, until your case is determined, you must refrain from giving in to these emotions.

It can be challenging to altogether avoid an accuser if you know and see them frequently. If you must see them, ensure someone else is there and never try to talk to the other person about their accusations. In addition, keep all your receipts from restaurants, shops and other establishments as proof of your whereabouts.

Document Every Detail Early

Make sure to provide your lawyer with a complete explanation of what occurred on the day or night in question while your memory is still fresh. Your memories will become less sharp as you wait longer. In addition, you have a better chance of recalling something that can undermine the case against you if you write down everything that happened as soon as this allegation is made.

Make a Thorough Witness List

You should compile a complete list of everyone who could testify on your behalf. If you have a witness, write down their name and how their testimony could benefit or jeopardize your case. In addition, you will need a list of character witnesses, witnesses the opponent might call and people who can attest to your presence during and around the claimed incident.

    Mr. Manciagli has done so much in so little time. In less than one month he was able to contact the courts and got me early termination for my supervised release. I am so grateful, he works fast and always stayed in contact with me. I highly recommend my attorney to everyone I am very satisfied with Mr. Manciagli. Very grateful to him for all he has done since the day I met him. He's just the best.


    Mr. Manciagli has lived and traveled all over the world, including Latin America, and his legal work has taken him to Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Jamaica. It was important for me, as a foreigner in the U.S., to have an attorney who understood me from a cultural level and who I could speak to in Spanish. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense attorney, Jeff Manciagli is the attorney you should call.


    Jeff was recommended by a friend. I am very pleased with the way my case was handled & the outcome was very satisfactory. I would recommend him.


    Entered into a drug case (1/2 oz of molly & 1g. of marijuana)..... I have 3+ felonies....Jeff got me 6 months house arrest & probation.....definite prison time without him.......reasonable priced....Thanks Jeff.


    My lawyer in FL recommended Jeff when I got arrested in GA and didn't know what to do. I got pulled over in a cash-cow speed trap town 20 miles above the state line and they called a K-9 unit and got probable cause to search my car. I was livid and felt so violated. Luckily I hired the best of the best. Jeff always called/emailed me back promptly when I had questions about my case, and Always spoke to me as an equal. He took care of everything and when it came time to go to court was honest and logical in discussing what was best and how my plea would affect my future. Under his council I felt calm and in control. I was facing 3 misdemeanor charges and got them all dropped on the condition that I do a small amount of community service, pay a fine, and don't get in any more trouble for a few months. I didn't even get points on my license for the original speeding ticket. At the end of the day, money is replaceable- my time and freedom are not. If I or anyone I know ever has trouble in GA again, I will be calling Jeff.
