What is Sodomy?

Sodomy is a term used to describe certain sexual acts, often considered non-traditional or deviating from the conventional sexual intercourse between a man and a woman. In the state of Maryland, sodomy laws encompass various forms of sexual conduct. While the legal landscape surrounding sexual conduct has evolved over the years, it is essential to understand the specific acts that may be considered sodomy under Maryland law. Common examples of acts that may be classified as sodomy include oral sex and anal sex.

What Are the Penalties for Sodomy in Maryland?

The penalties for sodomy in Maryland can be severe. They will vary based on the case's specific circumstances, including the age of the individuals involved and whether there was consent. Some common penalties in the state may include:

  • Age of Consent: Maryland's age of consent is 16, which means that consensual sexual activity between individuals 16 years or older is generally legal. However, engaging in sodomy with a person under 16, even if consensual, can lead to serious legal consequences.
  • Sex Offender Registration: Conviction for sodomy in Maryland may result in the requirement to register as a sex offender, which can have long-lasting implications for your personal and professional life.
  • Criminal Charges: Sodomy offenses can result in criminal charges, varying from misdemeanors to felonies, depending on the specific circumstances of the case. A conviction may lead to incarceration, fines, and probation.

Defenses Against Sodomy Charges

Some common defenses against sodomy charges may include:

  • Consent: If all parties involved were of legal age and engaged in consensual sexual activity, this may be a valid defense against sodomy charges.
  • Lack of Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's evidence and establishing that there is not enough proof to secure a conviction can be a successful defense strategy.
  • False Accusations: In some cases, individuals may falsely accuse others of sodomy for various reasons. We can investigate the circumstances to establish the truth.
  • Violation of Rights: We can ensure that law enforcement followed proper procedures and that your constitutional rights have not been violated during the investigation or arrest.
