Date Rape Charges in Detroit Michigan

Anytime an unwanted sexual act occurs between two people with an existing relationship, date rape charges can result. An existing relationship, however, is not easily defined, and can be anything from a past dating relationship to someone met at a nightclub. In drastic cases, a person can even file date rape charges against his or her spouse.

If date rape drugs, such as Rohypnol, are involved, cases are sometimes more clear cut. It still remains to be determined, however, who actually drugged the alleged victim, and if the person who committed a sex act with the alleged victim was aware of their state. In addition, it is debatable when intoxication renders a person unable to lawfully consent to sex.

Other questions that are asked in date rape cases are how and when the alleged victim denied sexual advances, and how long it took them to report an alleged crime to proper authorities. While many date rape accusations are legitimate, these questions and other factors make it highly possible for innocent people to be convicted of date rape in Michigan, which is why it is essential to work with an experienced attorney as soon as you are investigated for or charged with such as serious sex crime.
