If you are being charged with rape or sexual assault in Orlando or in any other place in Florida, we advice you to talk to an experienced Orlando rape defense attorney from NeJame Law immediately.

When people hear the word "rape" they usually think of violence and force. Sexual assault is, under Florida law, a physical contact of a sexual nature that is non-consensual. Rape is a common type of sexual assault.

In Florida, rape can simply be non-consensual sex with another person. This means that the person did not explicitly agree to engage in sexual intercourse or activity. You may think that you are engaging in consenting sex with someone, but after rape charges have been filed against you, you discover that the other person was not in agreement to engage in sexual intercourse with you. Rape is a serious felony and if you or someone you know has been accused or convicted of rape you need to contact an experienced defense lawyer from NeJame Law right away. Help is Here!

In Florida, rape is technically known as sexual battery and force is not a required element. Florida Statute § 794.011 defines sexual battery as oral, anal or vaginal penetration by, or union with the sexual organ of another or the anal or vaginal penetration of another by any other object (sexual battery does not include an act done for true medical purposes). A person who commits sexual battery on a person without the person's consent will be guilty of committing rape, no force is necessary.
