Domestic Sexual Assault and Spousal Rape Attorney

Many people think that sexual assault and rape are acts that cannot occur within a marriage. However, if a sexual act is not consensual, it is considered to be assault, regardless of the circumstances. Marriage does not dictate any sexual obligations by either partner, and there is never an excuse for domestic abuse, sexual assault, or rape of any kind.

If you have been the victim of unacceptable sexual violence at the hands of your spouse, contact the Boca Raton attorneys of Klein Law Group, at 561-367-5166 to discuss your legal options regarding divorce, restraining orders, and compensation for your suffering.

Definitions of Domestic Sexual Assault or Rape

There are many subtleties to the definitions of domestic sexual assault and rape that will bear upon the outcome of any legal action that is sought. The general requirements for an individual to bring a case against his or her partner include:

  • One spouse forced sexual activity onto the other against his or her will
  • The victim was unconscious, asleep, or drugged at the time of the sexual activity
  • The victim was threatened with physical harm if they did not agree to sex
  • The victim and the offender are married

Assault and rape can leave devastating physical effects on its victims. Lacerations, bleeding, bruising, pregnancy, organ damage, and head injuries are common consequences of this sort of attack, but there is often significant emotional damage as well.
