There are several types of rape that can be prosecuted under the law as rape does not strictly take place between a male aggressor and a female victim.

Depending on the circumstances, the penalties will be different and there is no way to know for sure what your sentence will be if you are convicted. Often rape offenses result in jail time, probation, steep fees and more. You will also have to be registered as a sex offender.

Any of these consequences can severely impact your life and career. Various types of rape offenses include:

Date rape

This type of rape often occurs between casual/social acquaintances, sometimes making it difficult to prove. It also commonly involves the use of a “date rape” drug, which would debilitate the victim and make it easier for the attacker to carry out the rape.

Gang rape

This type of rape includes at least two or more attackers committing a sexual assault against/forcing sexual intercourse upon one victim.

Prison rape

This type of rape occurs between prison inmates, meaning that they are usually same-sex crimes, and are thought to affect between 3%-12% of all inmates.

Incestual rape

This type of rape occurs between close relatives, including blood relatives, step-relatives, adoptive relatives, and/or members of the same household.

Statutory rape

This type of offense occurs between a person who has not yet reached the age of consent and an adult, regardless of consent.

Marital rape

This type of rape occurs between a married couple, regardless of the fact that they have previously engaged in consensual sex.
