Sexual & Abuse Defense
Statutory Rape is typically charged as a 2nd degree sexual assault in New Jersey punishable by 5-10 years in New Jersey state prison with a presumption of incarceration.
Even with no prior record after being committed with this charge it is presumed you will be given a state prison sentence. You may also be subject to Megan’s Law, the sex offender registration in New Jersey.
These are very complex situations requiring an experienced attorney to look at all the evidence at hand.
