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.
