Rape Defense Attorney

Serious Accusations Require Steadfast Defense – Call 414.882.8382

When you have been accused of rape – one of the most serious of all sex crimes in Wisconsin State legislation – you will immediately feel a magnifying glass over you and your entire life. The prosecution is going to start picking apart your history, looking for anything to use against you. The public and the media are also likely to judge you, casting you in an unfair and biased light before the details of your case are even established.

At the Law Offices of Christopher J. Cherella, our Milwaukee criminal defense lawyer is ready to stand up for his clients, no matter the severity of the charges they are facing. The criminal justice system simply does not work if it is not balanced; by working closely with our clients and doing all we can to ensure that they are treated fairly in court, we hope to uphold that balance.

  • 20+ years of legal and trial experience
  • 1,000+ criminal cases handled
  • Insight gained by being led by a former prosecutor

Your defense starts with you seeking legal counsel. Contact us today.


Rape Definition and Punishment

Consent to sexual activity has to be explicitly given by both individuals in order for it to be legal. In some cases, this is where complications can arise. Misunderstandings may lead to different opinions as to whether or not rape has occurred. The trouble is piecing the situation back together and relying on facts, rather than one person’s word against the others. With our experience and know-how, we hope to show that the accusations you are facing are false or exaggerated, warranting either a case dismissal or charge reduction.

Some of the penalties you could face if you do not prepare your case may ultimately include:

  • Fines paid to the state
  • Restitution paid to the alleged victim
  • Years in prison

Mandatory Sex Offender Registration

With most sex crimes, and nearly-all rape convictions, the accused must go through mandatory sex offender registration after sentencing. This list is made public and sometimes must be brought to the attention of parties in close proximity when moving or accepting a new job. Needless to say, rather than helping people avoid more trouble, this list often only creates undue stress upon the lives of those included. People have lost jobs, educational opportunities, and even the right to live in their building due to the sex offender registration. For this consequence and all the rest, you must fight your rape accusations.
