Rape is a statutory offence which can be committed by a man upon a woman or another man. It consists of non-consensual vaginal, anal or oral intercourse. An allegation of rape is triable only on indictment at the Crown Court and carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
Rape together with other allegations of a sexual nature should always be treated seriously.
If you are facing a sexual allegation, then it is essential that you take immediate legal advice from one of our expert Solicitors at SCM Law.
