Drugging Persons for Sexual Intercourse Boston's Go-To Criminal Defense Law Firm

Drugging Persons for Sexual Intercourse

Boston Sex Crimes Lawyer

Massachusetts considers drugging a person for sexual intercourse as one of the most serious sex crimes on record. According to the legal definition in the state, drugging a person for sexual intercourse is administering or causing someone to take any drug, matter, or substance with the intent to stupefy or overpower them, enabling the offender to have sexual or unnatural intercourse with them. The legal statute ends by stating that anyone convicted of such an act will be imprisoned for a minimum of 10 years but can face a life sentence.

Federal Offenses & Higher Penalties

In addition to being in direct violation of Massachusetts State laws, drugging a person for sexual intercourse is a federal crime and a form of rape. According to the federal statute, rape can occur between all genders, not just men and women, as the past state laws concluded. It also expands the definition of rape to include the inability to give consent due to alcohol or drugs, or any substance that renders a person unconscious or incoherent.

Penalties the accused could face for a drug-related rape charge include:

No matter how the situation is approached, a person accused of drugging someone for sexual intercourse is facing heavy penalties, both from the state and the federal government. Due to a perceived public biased against the accused in such situations, a steadfast criminal defense attorney with a sterling reputation may be necessary to secure a beneficial outcome.
