Understanding Rape Charges
In Oklahoma, there are a number of different types and classes of the crime of rape: Rape First Degree and Second Degree, Rape by Instrumentation. Rape cases sometimes involve those violent and terrifying scenes that most people associate with the word rape. However, charged rape cases in Oklahoma look nothing like what the average Oklahoman thinks they would look like. Typically, Oklahomans think of rape as a violent crime such as the stranger rape case where there is physical violence that is used against the victim, or the defendant used the fear of great bodily injury or death, to force or coerce sexual intercourse from their victim.
Violent stranger rape cases actually account for a very small percentage of the cases that are ultimately filed. These violent rape cases are sensationalized by the media. The media loves rape cases because they strike fear into the hearts of everyone that hears about them, all the while driving up their ratings in the process. However, stranger rape cases are actually only a very small number of rape charges that are filed every year in Oklahoma.
More often than the stranger rape, one type of first-degree rape cases I see regularly are those cases where the defendant is over 18 years old, and they are having sex with another person that is under 14 years old.
Rape charges are among the most severe and sensitive legal matters, carrying serious penalties that can impact your life for years to come. These charges are categorized into different degrees based on the circumstances of the alleged offense.
- First-Degree Rape
- Second-Degree Rape
- Rape by Instrumentation
