rape


rape
Unlawful sexual intercourse with a female without her consent. The unlawful carnal knowledge of a woman by a man forcibly and against her will. The act of sexual intercourse committed by a man with a woman not his wife and without her consent, committed when the woman's resistance is overcome by force or fear, or under other prohibitive conditions. State v. Lora, 213 Kan. 184, 515 P.2d 1086, 1093.
A male who has sexual intercourse with a female not his wife is guilty of rape if:
(a) he compels her to submit by force or by threat of imminent death, serious bodily injury, extreme pain or kidnapping, to be inflicted on anyone; or
(b) he has substantially impaired her power to appraise or control her conduct by administering or employing without her knowledge drugs, intoxicants or other means for the purpose of preventing resistance; or
(c) the female is unconscious; or
(d) the female is less than 10 years old. Model Penal Code, No. 213.1.
Under some statutes, crime embraces unnatural as well as natural sexual intercourse; e.g. M.G.L.A. (Mass.) c. 277, No. 39; and, may include intercourse between two males.
- carnal knowledge
@ statutory rape
Modern statutes, which often materially change the common-law definition, create an offense commonly known as "statutory rape," where the offense consists in having sexual intercourse with a female or male under statutory age. The offense may be either with or without the victim's consent; and mistake as to the victim's age is usually no defense.
+
The unlawful sexual intercourse with a female under the age of consent which may be 16, 17 or 18 years of age, depending upon the state statute. The government is not required to prove that intercourse was without the consent of the female because she is conclusively presumed to be incapable of consent by reason of her tender age.
