Statutory rape refers to having sex with someone below the “age of consent”. Laws vary among the states concerning statutory rape. Charges against the accused depend on the age of the victim and the age difference between victim and perpetrator. Penalties include jail sentences, probation, incarceration and fines. If you have been accused of statutory rape, contact a sex crimes attorney to ensure your rights are not jeopardized.
