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. Richard Grossman 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. Richard Grossman 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.

I needed an attorney who was well versed in State and County law. I was lucky to find Mr. Grossman. He represented and protected me in and out of court. He made all the preliminary calls and made sure we were ready to deal with my case. I owe him my gratitude and my respect. I would say, you will be hard pressed to find a better attorney in the Atlanta. Thank you Mr. Grossman.

Attorney Richard Grossman is a very experienced knowledgeable lawyer. I called him to take on my case and he was very responsive. He picked up the phone right away and gave me free consultation that most lawyers will charge you for . I was facing felony charges and he took on my case on a short notice. The case was dismissed on 01/18/2019. I will recommend him highly for anyone facing serious criminal charges . Also he helped me locate my passport which was taking away from me as a bond requirement, I picked up my passport today 02/04/19. Thank you Mr Grossman, God Bless you !

An AMAZING lawyer! Mr. Grossman was very helpful and is extremely knowledgable! He will fight for you as though you're family and is always in contact regarding any matter.

Attorney Grossman represented my son in a criminal case. His wisdom and advice enabled my son to keep his record clean and the charges were dropped. He is an excellent attorney and explains the court procedures and workings thoroughly. I would definitely recommend him!

Lee T.

Mr. Grossman recently represented me after I was arrested for drug charges. And unlike a lot of other lawyers that I observed, he did exactly everything he said he would do. There was no dishonesty or stringing along like I expected and he was very knowledgeable about everything I was experiencing. My fiance was also arrested with me and he had a not so great public defender so I got to experience lawyers from both ends of the spectrum and Mr. Grossman is definitely the best of the best. And even though he didn't have to, he would often give me advice and insight in my fiance's case as well since his lawyer wasn't always so helpful. Although having a good lawyer is very, very expensive Mr. Grossman worked with us as much as he could and it was worth every penny. He also just always seemed like he cared about my well being. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal services.

My grandson TP, a teenager, was charged as an adult with three counts of aggravated child molestation. The charges carried a sentence of 25 years to life. We interviewed several lawyers and law firms before hiring Mr. Grossman. Mr. Grossman listened to our issues and discussed our options. We hired Mr. Grossman and he talked to TP several times before the court date was set. It took the state almost a year to bring the case to court. I live out of state and the court date kept being extended. During this extended period of time Mr. Grossman visited TP many times even on Saturdays and Sundays. He did a thorough investigation which included going to the site and interviewing witnesses. Mr. Grossman was always informed, knowledgeable and ready for whatever the state presented us with during the proceedings in or out of the court room. TP and I were always informed about what to expect and our options. During his many visits with TP Mr. Grossman helped TP mentally and made him feel secure. The jury selection by Mr. Grossman was excellent. From day one our Mr. Grossman was very impressive with a calm demeanor. However in the court room his presentation was excellent. It seemed to me, that he was the superior legal mind in the court room. It appeared Mr. Grossman had complete control of everything that happened in the court room. TP was ACQUITTED and his arrest record was expunged. We were highly impressed and always felt secure because of Mr. Grossman's actions and ethics during our ordeal. We highly recommend Mr. Grossman.
