Rape Attorneys in Oakland, CA

Experienced Rape Defense by Certified Criminal Law Specialists

False Allegations of Sexual Assault

False allegations of sexual assault happen all the time. A person is ashamed of sexual activity, or is angry or wants to hurt the other person. In this #metoo era, people know the police and the community will listen.

We successfully represent people accused of these devastating allegations – preventing charges from being filed, aggressively investigating cases, and litigating in the courts. Call the lawyers at Beles & Beles if you or a loved one has been falsely accused of a sexual assault crime.

What is Forcible Rape in California?

Forcible rape can be charged when a woman alleges sexual intercourse without her consent and with force, duress, threat or menace. These allegations can be devastating and come out of nowhere sometimes – a miffed ex, a person ashamed of their actions. The penalties are enormous, including prison time and lifetime sexual registration. We fight these charges with investigation into history and social media. We have successfully defended hundreds of these cases.

 What is rape of an "unconcious" person?

Penal Code section 261(a)(3) and (a)(4) are rape a person incapable of resisting because of an intoxicant and rape of an unconscious or asleep person. All too often you hear of an allegation of rape because a person was drunk or high, or feigned sleep. Many of these accusations are false. Consensual sex can occur when a person is drunk or high. [See False Allegations blog] We successfully defend these charges vigorously, with experts about alcohol, investigation and our years of experience.

What other sexual assault allegations are charged in a California rape case?

The concepts of “force” and “unconscious” apply equally to allegations of digital penetration and oral copulation. Look no further than the uproar over the Stanford “rapist” – who was accused of digital penetration of a person incapable of resisting. These types of allegations are equally terrifying to the accused – carrying mandatory prison time and lifetime registration as a sex offender. Call the lawyers at Beles & Beles if you or a loved one has been accused of digital penetration or oral copulation. Do not let your life be ruined by false allegations.

What is statutory rape under California law?

“Statutory rape” is technically defined as unlawful intercourse (sex) with someone under 18. Other sex acts, such as oral sex and digital penetration with a person under 18 are also illegal – even if it is consensual, even if both parties are under 18. The consequences can be serious if there is an age difference of over 10 years. We have successfully defended men and women in this difficult situation.
