Sexual assault suspicions get Ray McDonald kicked off of team

Although the allegations of sexual assault by defensive lineman Ray McDonald are still just that, he has been cut from the the San Francisco 49ers. He has still yet to even be charged with anything related to sexual assault, and the apparent victim appears to be confused about what may have occurred. It is unclear whether California authorities intend to charge him with anything soon.

Much to consider when it comes to sexual assault

It goes without saying that sexually-based crimes are complex matters that are also terrible incidents. When it comes to sexual assault, many people may not actually know what the crime entails, even though it may seem straightforward. Sexual assault law varies from state to state and the penalties and consequences of such a charge vary in the same way.

Sex crimes carry many perceptions and penalties

Many people in Roseville, California and all across the country have heard a story about someone who is accused of sexual assault or some sexually-based crimes. You may immediately think that the person being accused is guilty, but that person is still innocent until proven guilty. The gravity of the alleged crime or the terrible circumstances that it allegedly involves doesn't make someone more or less innocent or guilty.

It's a bedrock principle in this country that people accused of crimes are presumed to be innocent if and until they are proven guilty. While almost everyone would agree with this sentiment, it is perhaps more palatable in theory than it is in practice. In many cases, it is true that the mere association of a person with a crime is enough to tarnish their name or their reputation.

Alleged rape leaves two Roseville men in jail with no bail

Any crime involving sex is sure to catch the attention of the media and the public. In many cases, the person who is alleged to have committed the crime will claim that the sexual contact was consensual, placing the issue of consent front and center in the ensuing judicial process. However, sometimes it is not until much later in the case that the issue of consent becomes a crucial factor, and, as reports surface of a rape in the local area, it could be some time before the details on whether or not consent will come into play in that case are released.

Authorities in Sacramento look for suspect in sexual assaults

Law enforcement authorities in nearby Sacramento have turned their focus to a couple of unsettling incidents that have occurred along Interstate 80 in recent months. A recent report of a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on December 10 closely matched the details of a previous report of a sexual assault that occurred back on September 19. In both instances the female victims alleged that they were dragged down embankments as they were walking along the roadside. It appears that once the perpetrator believed he had secured the victims out of sight of the road he then assaulted them.
