James Cummings on Statutory Rape

Posted over 1 year ago. Applies to Carteret County, NC, 1 helpful vote


Hi! I'm James Cummings and I want to talk to you a little bit today about a fact pattern that I see in my office three or four times every year. It's unfortunate but what happens is a young man in the military or someone who's come to Carteret County on vacation who's 20 or 21 years old meets a girl on a beach or meets her in a bar, they have a relationship only for him to discover later that she's underage. What's scary about this case is that if you're charge, you will be charged as a B1 statutory rape sex offender. Not only would a conviction require you to be a registered sex offender for the rest of your life but the crime carries anywhere from 12 to 20 years in punishment. If you, a friend or a loved one has found herself in this unfortunate situation, give us a call at Cummings & Cummings today you need immediate representation. At Cummings & Cummings, the initial consultation is always free and confidential.
