Oklahoma Can Gain a Conviction With Little or No Evidence
Although you’ve likely had consensual sexual relations with the alleged victim in the past, any sex crimes attached to a domestic violence charge should be taken seriously. What you may have interpreted as an emotionally charged attempt to “make things right” after an argument got out of control may be viewed by the state as rape or sexual battery.
Evidence of consensual sex can be easily interpreted as evidence of rape, especially since this charge doesn’t necessarily need to involve visible physical injury to the victim. A sexual battery charge needs no physical evidence attached to it.
Cases involving sexual crimes can easily deteriorate into a “he said, she said” scenario where you’re competing to see who comes across as the most credible witness. When the charge is tacked on to a domestic violence offense, you’re in an incredibly vulnerable position.
