Spousal Rape

Spousal rape - also called marital rape or Intimate Partner Sexual Assault (IPSA) - occurs when the alleged perpetrator is the victim's spouse or partner. It could happen to either a husband or a wife. Because each state has different laws regarding this crime, and whether a partnership is classified under this heading, it is imperative to consult with an attorney if you have been accused of this crime.

Those that have been accused of this crime have the right to defense in a court of law and the use of an experienced lawyer can help present your case in a fair light. If you or someone you love has been accused of spousal rape, contact the Austin criminal defense attorneys of Ian Inglis by calling (512) 472-1950.

What Is Spousal Rape?

Spousal rape can take many different forms, including the following:

  • Violence, such as physical or sexual abuse
  • Sex after an episode of violence or abuse in order to "make up"
  • Restraint during sex, in which the victim cannot move or fight back
  • Sadistic, degrading acts that the partner is forced to perform
  • Sexual play that verges on violence or physically harms the victim

Spousal rape is a very serious accusation that can lead to life-long consequences for the accused. In order to make sure you are fairly represented in a court of law, it is important to understand your rights and evaluate your case with an attorney.
