Laws Regarding Rape in New York

Searching for a lawyer for a rape case in NYC? The severity of a rape charge will depend on certain factors. The age of the victim, the age of the alleged perpetrator, and the circumstances surrounding the incident will be considered when classifying a rape.

The following are the three classifications of rape:

  • First Degree - Class B felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
  • Second Degree - Class D felony, punishable by up to 7 years in prison.
  • Third Degree - Class F felony, punishable by up to 4 years in prison.

Along with the age of the victim and the alleged perpetrator, factors surrounding the issue of consent will be taken into consideration. For example, if a victim was unable to give consent due to mental impairment, even if both parties were of an age to classify the rape as a lower level, it may be bumped up to a higher charge.
