intimidation or violence. Under state laws, rape is sexual assault, and
includes cases involving:
- Marital rape - the sexual assault of a spouse
- Date rape - sexually assaulting a person you are acquainted with

Possible Penalties for Rape Conviction
Aggravated sexual assault is another, more serious rape offense that involves
the use of a deadly weapon, causing bodily harm, threatening to cause
bodily harm or putting a person in fear of being hurt. Cases involving

sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault. Indecency with a child and
sexual assault are second degree felonies punishable by 2 to 20 years
in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
