Charges For Rape In NY

Generally understood as sexual intercourse without consent, state laws divide rape into these three categories:

  • Third Degree Rape: If someone over the age of 18 has sexual intercourse with an individual less than 17 years of age, the adult can face charges for rape in the third degree. If an individual forces sex on a person who cannot agree to intercourse due to physical or mental impairment, a court can also charge that individual with this offense.
  • Second Degree Rape: Adults who engage in sexual intercourse with individuals less than 15 years of age can face charges for this crime.
  • First Degree Rape: Often called statutory rape, this offense involves an individual forcing sex on another person or engaging in intercourse with a minor under the age of 11.

Penalties for rape charges can vary, but most sentences include a fine and anywhere from 4 to 25 years in prison.
