Greetings. I have a potential rape by defraud case being brought against me in New York by several women I have had unprotected sex with. I'm trying to determine if they have a case and when I should seek legal representation.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
What other details do you need?

What specifically are they saying you did? What evidence do they have?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
They are saying that because I had a girlfriend and did not tell them about it I defrauded them into a relationship and sex. Additionally a few woman have had a bacterial infection but I have never tested positive for the same infection. They have text messages where I lied about being in a relationship with someone.

You not telling the women you do not have a girlfriend does not rise to the level of criminal misconduct. As long as you did not transfer a sexually transmitted disease to the women I do not see any basis for a criminal charge against you.

Okay. So if I don't test positive for it and they do am I "in the clear" so to speak?

That is correct - can you please rate my answer with 5 stars

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
