Sexual Assault & Rape

Sexual Assault & Rape

Sexual assault can refer to different types of sexual contact, ranging from unwanted touching to penetration. Rape refers to illegal sexual penetration. Some sexual assault cases originate in alleged behavior on the part of an acquaintance, boyfriend or husband, while other cases allege illegal behavior on the part of a stranger unknown to the complainant, who may be an adult or a child.

In Oregon, sexual assault and rape are considered very serious crimes that can lead to long jail or prison sentences. In addition, the personal and professional damage that occurs and the long-term sex offender registration that results can cause problems that last for decades.

Have You Been Accused Of A Sex Crime?

At the law office of Steven J. Sherlag, P.C., in Portland, Oregon, I have an extensive trial history related to sexual assault and rape cases. I have successfully handled very difficult and, at times, uncomfortable matters. As a defense attorney with more than 20 years of criminal and civil practice experience and a firm commitment to the protection of my clients’ rights, I can represent you in addressing:

  • Sex assault charges
  • Rape charges or sexual abuse charges
  • Accusations of statutory rape involving a minor under the age of 18
  • Date rape charges that relate to the often complicated issue of consent
  • Charges of child sex abuse, forcible compulsion, sodomy or unlawful sexual penetration
  • A case that hinges on behavior that occurred while individuals were under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Every sexual assault case is different. I will take the time to understand your case, carefully investigate the evidence and execute a defense strategy with the best chance of success.
