Toledo, Ohio Rape Charges and Defense

Ohio law defines rape as:

“any form of unwanted sexual contact obtained without consent and/or obtained through the use of force, threat of force, intimidation, or coercion.”

Toledo, Ohio is unfortunately no stranger to rape charges. 

But just because Toledo has had its share of rapes doesn’t mean that every person accused of rape in the city is guilty. 

Of course, every case is different and there is no one-size-fits-all defense to these rape charges. 

An experienced criminal defense attorney will work with you to examine the facts of your case and build an effective defense strategy tailored to your specific situation. 

If you have been charged with rape in Toledo, Ohio, don’t try to navigate the criminal justice system on your own – instead, seek out experienced legal help as soon as possible.
