Rape can be charged in three degrees in New York and NYC. Being charged with a rape crime is very serious, and you should contact a New York criminal defense lawyer immediately if you’re facing such charges.

Rape in the Third Degree

This class E felony occurs when a person:

  • Has sexual intercourse with someone who is incapable of consent by reason of some factor other than age (being less than 17 years old)
  • Who is 21 years old or older has sexual intercourse with someone who is less than 17 years old
  • Has sexual intercourse with someone without their consent, where lack of consent is by some other reason than an incapacity to consent

Rape in the Second Degree

This class D felony can be charged when a person:

  • Is 18 years old or older and has sexual intercourse with someone who is less than 15 years old
  • Has sexual intercourse with someone who is mentally disabled or mentally incapacitated and incapable of consenting

If a defendant is less than four years older than a victim, that may be considered an affirmative defense.

Rape in the First Degree

  • By forcible compulsion
  • Who is incapable of consent because they are physically helpless
