Date Rape Lawyer in San Diego

“Date rape” occurs when the alleged victim complains after a sexual encounter. Many times these cases involve alcohol, which lowers the inhibition of the woman and impairs the good judgment of the male. In a false accusation case the woman usually feels bad about her behavior or has a distorted memory of her consent. The alleged victims making these false accusations either claim they were too drunk to consent or they tried to stop but the man refused. They might say they were too drunk and the man took advantage of that or they might say that the male got them drunk in order to take advantage of them. They may also claim that regardless of alcohol, they were engaged in kissing when the man got carried away and refused to stop.

Psychologically, it is much easier to accept that they have been forced to do something rather than admit they consented to sexual relations on the first date or went home and had sex with some guy they met in a bar. The younger the woman the more their psyche is negatively affected by casual sex. Sometimes the women in these situations also have serious personality disorders or character disorders that predispose them to take the role of the victim enthusiastically. It is too easy to engage in victim smearing, but it should not be overlooked that false allegations in this type of case are common, and must be considered as a possibility.

In these cases you also have the problem of the S.A.R.T. nurse who immediately forms support for the victim. Rarely do they disbelieve an alleged victim. Anything they can say to make it appear non-consensual, even though the science is against them, they will do. Once you are charged with sexual assault the whole system is against you.
