Defend Yourself Against Spousal Rape in Cerritos CA
Everyone knows rape is a crime and one that is deemed to be quite serious, often landing one several years in prison and/or registration as a sex offender under Megan’s Law. From a relatively young age, this is something most people become aware of.
However, often, people assume rape is performed against a complete stranger, an acquaintance, a friend, or a family member. However, what people often fail to realize is that rape can involve anyone at all. In fact, there’s such a thing known as spousal rape.
What Exactly is Spousal Rape?
Spousal rape is exactly what it sounds like: rape that is performed on one’s own spouse. And it’s definitely a real crime that involves serious legal consequences, just like rape and other sexual crimes that are completed against any other person.
If I’m Legally Married to My Partner, How is it Possible to Be Convicted of Spousal Rape?
Regardless of whether or not you are married to the person who happens to be your victim, a crime is a crime. If sexual activity is inflicted on someone that is unwanted, even if it isn’t particularly forceful or violent, it is considered rape nonetheless. Even if you’re married, and there isn’t an active divorce happening, the experience that occurred can still count as spousal rape.
In the event that your spouse or ex-spouse wishes to take you to court for spousal rape, it’s absolutely possible that you can be found guilty and prosecuted for your actions, that is, if there is enough evidence to proof that you’re guilty.
