    Facing Rape Charges

    Under Florida law, rape becomes a first-degree felony if the victim is threatened with violence, is physically or mentally unable to resist, or if the victim has been given a narcotic in order to render them defenseless.

    Those convicted of rape or other sex crimes are required to register as a sex offender, which publicizes their name, picture, nature of conviction, and home address via the internet. Failure to register as a sex offender is itself a crime, a third-degree felony.

    Too often, a rape accusation is made when one person merely regrets sexual involvement with another. Also, consensual drug use can exacerbate feelings of regret later, leading one person to accuse the other of rape.
