SEXUAL OFFENSE

Stereotypes

There are many situation where a person can be raped. For example, a person walking in the alley way at night and a man popping out and getting you doesn't happen that often. Another example is when you are at home; you can still be raped at your house; people just don't think you can be. It's just a myth.

Second Degree Rape

This is when there is vaginal intercourse by force and without consent; neither marriage nor intoxication may be used as a defense.

First Degree Rape

This is when there is vaginal intercourse by force without consent. Also when in court if you used a weapon, inflicted serious injury, or was aided by any others than it is considered a first degree rape; which is worse than a second degree rape.
