San Diego Domestic Sexual Assault and Spouse Rape Lawyers

Spouse rape, also known as marital rape, is a form of domestic violence in which one partner forces the other partner to engage in sexual acts that are non-consensual. Because spouse rape is a form of both rape and domestic violence, a person accused of spousal rape is subject to penalties for both crimes. Victims of spousal rape are often left with much long-term physical and emotional damage.

If your or a loved one is the victim of spousal rape, it is critical to consult with a caring, understanding, and nonjudgmental attorney who can provide you with the legal counsel and representation that you need. In addition to criminal charges, you may be able to pursue action through the civil justice system.

What is Marital Rape?

Marriage does not grant either spouse the right to force or attempt to force the other spouse into sexual intercourse whenever it is desired. Unfortunately, many people remain unaware that it is illegal for a spouse to coerce sexual acts. If your spouse engaged in sexual activities that weren’t consensual with the intent to cause sexual arousal, sexual abuse, or sexual gratification, then you may have grounds to file a marital rape case and to seek protection from your spouse.
