what is the jail time for statutory rape.


The jail time and fines for statutory rape in Maryland can range in seriousness from misdemeanor to felony and will depend on the situtation and age of both parties involved. Sentencing is ultimately up to the presiding judge and would be within the sentencing limits perscribed by the statutes relative to the crime committed.

These statutes can be located under Maryland Criminal Law Subtitle 3: Sexual Crimes sections 3-301 through 3-324

If you have been charged or expect to be charged with a sexual crime, I would strongly advise that you seek legal representation.
