Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk at a party. He was the one who brought the alcohol to several minors. He raped her while she was passed out/asleep. We are prosecuting and have done everything including a rape kit but was done 60 hours after the rape when we found out. The exam showed abrasions to her labia and blood on her cervix. She woke up to this happening and pushed him off and left so we are doubting any semen. SO we have a he said she's said he is saying it was consensual. He has a record, He has been arrested 9 times, 5 of them for giving alcohol to minors. Our daughter is in counseling and is having good and bad days. We are supporting her and believe her 100%. My fear is he will go free. Do we need an attorney or do we wait for the prosecutors?

I was 22 years old when I met a girl's mom at the

Hi, I was 22 years old when I met a girl's mom at the workplace, she introduce her daughter to me, and we began our relationship including sex. I have asked her and her parents, and I know she was 17. During the relationship, I spend a lot of time and all my money to her and her family. With a surprise, one day a detective called me to go to police station immediately for investigation of statuary rape. I was shocked and told him I don't know what he taking about and I need a lawyer to go with me, he told me I have to go there immediately or he will issue an arrest on me. So I went there, in a room with recorder, he told me the girl I have been dating was 16 years old, and her mom complain to him, during the talking, he finally got me admitted to sex with 16 years old. I went to court and got sentenced coz based on solely my incrimination statement. Now I am done with my sentence, and the girl I was dating went to my work place told me that her mom plan this out so she can sue me for money. I am very angry now coz her mom used her daughter to trick me into trouble. and I want to file a motion 440 to vacate this case. but how I can prove to court I wasn't aware she was 16 and the statement I made in police station was not volunteer?

My name is ******** and my issue is regarding the statute of

Good morning. My name is ******** and my issue is regarding the statute of limitations on statutory rape in CA.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: Sure. When I was 16 I was in a relationship with a man 8 years older than me (24 at the time) and we began having sex. At one point he was investigated for statutory rape against me, but I denied that sex occurred and the complaint was dismissed. Later, at 17, I became pregnant with his child (in March of 2013). We remained together until after I was 18 and split up in May of 2014. I am now 20 and wondering if I have options for any legal course of action against him, or if such actions would even be effective (i.e. what the result of a conviction would mean for him). Its also worth noting that I have sole physical and legal custody of the child and he only receives 3 supervised visits a year (due to criminal issues and gang affiliation on his behalf).JA: OK got it.

Is it misconduct if a DA stand up in a restaurant in town

is it misconduct if a DA stand up in a restaurant in town and tells your sons case to the whole restaurant tells them that your son made a plea deal when he had not. Is it misconduct if the asst DA ask people not connect to the case what they want to happen to the kid. When told that they were not there and it was non of their business, are then told it doesn't matter for them to tell him what they wanted to happen and he would whisper it in the judges ear. Is it misconduct when under age kids were question by police with out a parent present and threaten to put them in jail if they do not change their story also threaten them with prison time.

In a statutory rape case, the mother has confiscated the

In a statutory rape case, the mother has confiscated the phone of the minor that contains sexual pictures that she deems as evidence. However, these pictures do no include the face of either party involved and it seems almost impossible to prove that thedefendant is the one in the pictures. Is this still good evidence? Is it enough to win the case or to prove the defendant guilty of statutory rape?

I've met a person walking down the street near where I live,

I've met a person walking down the street near where I live, so after some conversation we ended up in my apartment. The person came by a few times and we got intimate. Now, after a month of seeing each other the person told me is 17 years old and that if I want to keep thing quiet I need to pay money. I gave money, but now the price went to the thousands. I am not sure the person is a minor, and I don't think that is the case. Should I hire a lawyer to handle communication between me and this person? What is the best way to proceed in a situation like this? Please advise.
