North Carolina date rape charges

On Behalf of | Sep 30, 2016 | Sex Crimes |

North Carolina residents who are approached by police officers that accuse them of committing date rape may want to speak with a criminal defense attorney immediately. An attorney will be able to provide wise counsel as to the best criminal defense strategies to employ given the facts surrounding a particular case.

When it comes to any kind of rape allegations, North Carolina police are sometimes eager to believe the one-sided stories of the alleged victims. However, date rape allegations usually rely on he-said-she-said arguments, which may not have enough factual evidence for them to hold water in court.

Is important for anyone who is accused of a crime to remember that the North Carolina criminal court system will not convict any person of a crime until — and only if — that individual is proved to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In this respect, every person accused of a crime will have the chance to defend him or herself in court, and the burden of proof will lie on the prosecution.

In some cases, the burden of proof is difficult for the prosecution to overcome, and the defendant will be able to achieve a verdict of not guilty and/or get his or her charges dropped or dismissed. Meanwhile, in cases where the prosecution has gathered compelling evidence to convict the defendant, the defendant may wish to try and negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecution. A plea bargain generally involves the defendant agreeing to plead guilty to one or more charges in exchange for a reduction in the severity of punishments.
