Fairfield college student denies rape allegations

Of all the crimes a person can be charged with a sex crime can be one of the most devastating. The stigma that comes with a sex crime can stick with a person for a lifetime? Even if a person is found innocent just being charged with a sex crime can damage a person’s reputation forever. Anyone in the Fairfield area facing a sex charge should take that charge very seriously as well as remember that you he or she is innocent until proven guilty.

A young college student has pleaded innocent to sex charges after allegations that he raped a college freshman. According to reports the 19-year-old man, who is a student at Fairfield University, allegedly bragged to his friends that he had raped a girl who was still a virgin and that she had wanted to wait to have sex until she was in love. The man has been charged with first-degree sexual assault, first-degree unlawful restraint and third-degree assault. However he has pleaded not guilty and chose to have a jury trial.

Investigators say that the man even texted his friends about what he had done. However, his attorney claims that his client’s plea speaks for itself. He also noted that even though accusations are “easily made,” they are not always “easily proven.” According to reports the girl claimed that she was raped in her dorm room, but the accused man says that the sex was consensual.

If you have been charged with a sex crime you too should know your rights and be prepared to defend them. You might want to speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you are facing any kind of sex crime allegation.
