Aggravated Rape

Aggravated Rape is a rape in which there is serious bodily injury or the rape occurred during the commission of a certain criminal offense. The other offenses during which a rape occurs that will turn the rape into an aggravated rape are:

  1. assault and battery with a dangerous weapon
  2. robbery both armed or unarmed
  3. kidnapping
  4. burglary armed or unarmed
  5. breaking and entering either at night or day
  6. carrying a dangerous weapon.

If any of the above offenses are being committed and a rape also occurs the rape can be charged as an aggravated rape. A defendant can face up to life in prison if convicted of aggravated rape.

If one engages in a joint enterprise to rape it will also make the rape an aggravated rape. A joint enterprise can take the form of another person merely being present or available at the scene having engaged in either a verbal or non-verbal understanding to assist if needed in the commission of the rape.

We are a criminal defense firm in Massachusetts that works with private investigators who look into the story told by a victim as well as any and all motives or biases a person may have in wanting to lie and accuse somebody falsely. We work with expert witnesses who testify as to how common false complaints are made and the reasons why a person would accuse another falsely of rape. Rape charges easily inflame a jury against a defendant, a jury wants to believe a crying victim over a defendant, you need a Boston criminal attorney who knows how to educate a jury as to why a person would make up such a charge and who will hold the jury to the high burden of proof required to convict someone of such a serious offense.

As a Boston sex crime’s attorney, it is advised to get representation at the earliest stages of an investigation to give you the best chance to avoid or beat rape charges. Call for a free confidential consultation with a criminal defense lawyer, 617-393-0250.

If you find yourself needing a lawyer, Frank is your guy. Right from the very first phone call (which he answered, not a call center) he made me feel comfortable and gave me great advice. He was very professional, did a great job explaining everything to me, and really listened to what I had to say (which helped me calm down in a stressful situation). Very happy I chose to work with Frank, he made a tough situation the easiest it could be. Also - added bonus for some - he's fluent in Spanish! Thanks again Frank.

I needed a criminal lawyer here in Boston, and needed one quickly. After doing something stupid that would have costed me my scholarship, I called The Fernandez Firm and got legal advice from Mr. Fernandez. I was so worried at first but after talking to Mr. Fernandez I felt so much better and knew it could be dealt with properly. Thanks for taking the time to figure out my case exactly.
