Scranton Statutory Rape Attorney

Sex with a minor under the age of 18 with or without consent is a form of rape and is a sexual assault on a child. This is considered a very serious criminal offense in the state of Pennsylvania. When statutory rape (also referred to as underage sex) charges are under investigation, law enforcement will most likely have a compiled amount of evidence to support their case. Not only will law enforcement often have the minor’s testimony, they may have DNA evidence to prove that sexual penetration or a sex act did, in fact, take place.
