Georgia Statutory Rape Laws

Under Georgia Law, statutory rape is defined as sexual intercourse with a person less than 16 years of age. It is important to note that the statue does not require evidence of force or lack of consent to prosecute for statutory rape. In addition, the Georgia law can also convict a person of statutory rape even if he or she did not have knowledge of the victim’s age or if the victim lied about their age. Under this law, a person under 16 does not have the legal capacity to consent to sex. Jeff Manciagli is prepared to fight this strict liability crime. He works hard to carefully investigate the evidence surrounding your specific circumstance or scenario and will tailor his defense strategy accordingly.

Because a statutory rape conviction in Georgia carries serious penalties, you need professional legal assistance to save your future and reputation. Statutory rape offenders 21 years of age or older can face imprisonment ranging from 10 to 20 years. Jeff Manciagli will strongly explore ways in which your statutory rape penalty can be reduced, such as the absence of any previous sexual offense convictions and similar transactions or the fact that the alleged victim was not harmed physically. You can count on his unparalleled legal expertise and aggressive defense strategy to stay ahead of the prosecution at every turn of your statutory rape case.

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.
