Ohio Rape Law


An individual charged with Rape faces one of the most serious charges that the State can bring against an individual. Second only to the charge of Murder, Rape carries with it a significant punishment as well as a significant stigma. This has a profound effect upon not only the person charged but also on their family.

Rape is a felony of the first degree. Some forms of Rape will require a life sentence, others require prison sentences ranging from three to ten years. The sentencing for a specific rape is highly dependent upon the facts of the case and only after a complete review by a competent and skilled attorney will you know where you stand in regards to a possible penalty.

Rape also carries with it a lifetime registration as a sex offender. This is called a Tier III classification and requires that every ninety days for the rest of your life you report to the local sheriff and tell them where you are residing, where you are working, and who you are living with. You will be prohibited from living near schools and other places that children frequent.

This is a very serious charge.  You need an attorney with tremendous experience in the criminal justice system. If you or a loved one has been charged with this crime, or before you speak with the police if they are investigating you, contact me. I offer free consultation. I am here to help you.
