Understanding Rape Charges in Queens & NYC

The degrees of a rape charge can vary according to the severity or particular circumstances surrounding the alleged crime. Under New York law, third-degree rape is a class E felony that is punishable by up to four years, and occurs when a person has sexual intercourse with a victim who will not, or cannot consent, or if the offender is over 21 years old and the victim is less than 17 years old. In the case of second-degree rape, the offender must engage in sexual intercourse with someone who is mentally disabled or incapacitated, or have sexual intercourse with someone age 15 or younger, while being 18 years of age or older.

Second-degree rape is a class D felony and prison terms up to seven years may be imposed upon conviction. First-degree rape occurs when a person uses force to achieve sexual intercourse without the victim's consent. If the offender is more than 18 years old and the victim is less than 13 or if the victim is less than 11 years old, the charge will immediately become first-degree rape. The most serious of penalties is imposed in this class B felony and convicted defendants should expect to face anywhere from 5 to 35 years in prison.
