Sexual Assault Rape

Sexual Assault also known as Rape is one of the most heinous and serious felony criminal charges in Las Vegas, Nevada.  A Sexual Assault charge comes from an accusation that someone was physically forced to engage in a sexual act against their will. Or a sexual act was performed when the offender should have known that the victim was unable to give consent. For example, if the victim was overly intoxicated on drugs and/or alcohol or they possessed a mental handicap, the prosecutor would argue that intoxicated or handicapped person lacked the ability to consent, and a Sexual Assault has been committed. If you are charged with Sexual Assault the penalties are life in prison with or without the possibility of parole, and if you are ever released from prison you would have to register as a sex offender for life.

Unfortunately, being falsely accused of Sexual Assault/Rape is not an uncommon occurrence. If charged it is necessary to put forth a strong defense as your character is being attacked, and with a potential life sentence looming, you must be prepared for a fight. Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney Michael A. Troiano understands the severity of this type of accusation and will use his experience to discredit these false accusations even before your case reaches a trial.
