Consequences of a Rape Conviction

Rape is defined as a form of unwanted sexual intercourse without consent or through the use of force, threats, coercion, or the use of intoxicating substances. An individual may also be charged with this offense if they have sex with someone who isn’t their spouse, or is their spouse but they don’t live together, and the person knew or had reason to believe the victim could not provide consent or the victim is less than 13 years of age.

Rape is considered a first-degree felony, which is punishable by a minimum prison sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of 10 years, as well as a fine of up to $20,000. If coercion or force is involved, or the victim was under ten years old, rape can result in life imprisonment.

Additionally, a rape conviction results in being classified as a sex offender, potentially for the rest of the person’s life. The charge will be on an individual’s criminal record forever as well.
