Date Rape

New Brunswick Date Rape Defense Attorney

Developing Effective Defense Strategies in Middlesex County

While forensic evidence — such as blood, fibers, and DNA — is important in sexual offense cases, the history and background of the alleged victim must also be scrutinized. Unfortunately, a psychologically unstable coworker, romantic partner, or acquaintance can allege that someone raped them to settle a perceived insult or due to a bout of depression or bipolar disorder.

While DNA or blood evidence may indicate you had sexual relations with the alleged victim, the prosecution must convince a jury that the sex was not consensual. In this regard, perhaps the most important part of a date rape case is whether a jury finds the alleged victim and their version of events credible.

At Jack Venturi Law, our New Brunswick date rape defense attorney can conduct his own investigation into the physical evidence against you, as well as the background of the alleged victim.

Challenging Charges of Date Rape

Police and investigators rarely conduct a full investigation into the background of an alleged date rape victim or the circumstances surrounding the charge. Struggling with limited resources and time, prosecutors typically settle on a theory that they believe “makes sense of the evidence” and pursue a conviction accordingly.

Our criminal defense attorney, however, gathers additional eyewitness testimony. If appropriate, we request that the alleged victim be given a psychological evaluation.

We also investigate whether:

  • The alleged victim has a history of accusing others of rape or sexual assault
  • The alleged victim takes powerful prescription medications
  • The alleged victim suffers from depression, narcissistic personality disorder, insomnia, alcoholism, drug abuse, or paranoia
  • The alleged victim made threats — veiled or otherwise — against you
  • The evidence supports the alleged victim’s timeline of events. This is especially important when alcohol, food, or drugs were consumed near the time of the alleged rape.

Charged with Date Rape? Contact Jack Venturi Law

If convicted on a charge of date rape, under New Jersey law you’ll have to register as a sex offender and serve a mandatory minimum of 85% of your sentence. After leaving prison, you will likely have difficulty finding a job or a place to live, and your reputation will never be the same. You will also be under parole supervision for the rest of your life. That’s why it’s essential to fight the charges against you with an experienced criminal defense team. Our New Brunswick date rape defense lawyers are here to help.
