Rape is not cool, It is not ok and your butt is going to JAIL and it has NO sexual connotation!

Let it be know that RAPE IS A CRIME, and I saw a lot of folk mad that people mad that ACTIONS regarding rape were not being policed or investigated as so they should in the world.

Regardless of where you are in the world or if you are running for presidential office, an actor, professional sport fiquire or serving burgers at your local restaurant!

Rape is not gender placed on just female events, it is also equal in the male world.Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration perpetrated against a person without that person’s consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion,abuse of authority or against a person who is incapable of giving valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, has an intellectual disability or is below the legal age of consent.. The term rape is sometimes used interchangeably with the term sexual assault.

Not all punishment are equal in every country, in Canada, The law gives a judge a great deal of choice in deciding the most appropriate punishment for each case. Although the judge can decide on the punishment from a wide range of options, the maximum possible sentence depends on the crime. The word rape is not used in the Canadian Criminal Code. Instead the law criminalizes “sexual assault”. Sexual assault is defined as sexual contact with another person without that other person’s consent. Consent is defined in section 273.1(1) as “the voluntary agreement of the complainant to engage in the sexual activity in question”.

In FRANCE

Rape is punished by a maximum of thirty years’ criminal imprisonment where it caused the death of the victim.

Rape is punished by a maximum of imprisonment for life when it is preceded, accompanied or followed by torture or acts of barbarity.

IN RUSSIA

·        was committed with particular cruelty (e.g. the criminal used violence that caused severe physical pain or the crime was committed in presence of relatives of the victim)

·        caused an STD infection

then it is punishable with 4 to 10 years of imprisonment with possible subsequent restraint of liberty for up to 2 years (i.e. the criminal may not change or leave residence without permission and must register himself at local penal inspectorate 1 to 4 times a month; court may also impose additional restrictions such as the criminal may not leave home in certain hours, visit certain locations, change work without permission).

IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

Rape

(1) A person (A) commits an offence if—

(a) he intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person (B) with his penis,

(b) B does not consent to the penetration, and

(c) A does not reasonably believe that B consents.

IN the UNITED STATES

There is no national rape law in the United States, due to the United States v. Morrison ruling that parts of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 were unconstitutional. Each state has its own laws concerning sexual aggression. Nor is there any national standard in the US for defining and reporting male-male or female-perpetrated rapes. State laws vary considerably, and in most states the term “rape” is no longer used, and the offense has been replaced by crimes such as “sexual assault”, “criminal sexual conduct”, “sexual abuse”, “sexual battery” etc. The US laws on sexual violence are complex, with states having numerous sex offenses, dealing with different situations. The laws on sex crimes have been changed and modernized significantly during the last decades and they continue to change.

What about statue of limitations like in the USA

Bottom of Form

For those states that have a statute of limitations for rape, some period between three to thirty years is common. However, not all states have a statute of limitations for rape and others have exceptions to their own statutes.

What Is a Statute of Limitations?

In general terms, a statute of limitations is a time limit in which a person has to file a claim. If the time limit expires, the individual who wishes to bring forth a claim is barred from doing so. In a criminal context, a statute of limitations is the time limit in which the prosecutor must file charges. In some jurisdictions, the statute begins to run from the date of the offense or discovery of the offense. In other jurisdictions, the statute starts to run after the victim reports the crime to authorities.

Purpose of the Statute of Limitations

States may establish statutes of limitations for different reasons. For example, a statute may exist because it would be difficult to prosecute a case after a certain period of time passes. Witnesses may move or die. Evidence may be lost or degraded. There may be inadequate space to store evidence for unsolved crimes. Philosophically, states may establish statutes of limitations so that an offender does not live in purgatory for the rest of his or her life. At some point, the would-be defendant can get past the point in time in which he or she would be required to legally atone for his or her crimes.

Ten Years or Less

Many jurisdictions have a statute of limitations for ten years or less. California, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Montana, Texas and Washington have a ten-year statute of limitations. Maine has an eight-year statute. North Dakota has a seven-year statute while Oregon, Vermont, Arkansas, New Hampshire and Hawaii have a six-year statute of limitations. Connecticut has a five-year statute and Florida has a four-year statute. Minnesota has the shortest statute of limitations of three years.

More than Ten Years

A few states have statutes of limitations that are longer than ten years in duration. For example, Pennsylvania has a twelve-year statute of limitations. Georgia, Massachusetts and Washington, D.C. have fifteen-year statutes of limitations for some forms of rape. Ohio has a 20-year statute of limitation for rape.

No Limit

Many states do not have a statute of limitation in place for some forms of rape or all rape offenses. These states include Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Lack of consent is key to the definition of rape. Consent is not always expressed verbally. It may be implied from the context and from the relationship of the parties, but the absence of objection does not of itself constitute consent. Lack of consent may result from either forcible compulsion by the perpetrator or an incapacity to consent on the part of the victim (such as persons who are asleep, intoxicated or otherwise mentally compromised). Sexual intercourse with a person below the age of consent, i.e., the age at which legal competence is established, is referred to as statutory rape. In certain jurisdictions, consent may also be negated if an individual agrees to have sex only on certain terms. An example is the case of a man who deliberately ejaculated in a woman’s vagina although she consented to sex only on the clear understanding that he would not do so. Consent can be withdrawn at any time, so that any further sexual activity would constitute rape.

Duress is the situation when the person is threatened by overwhelming force or violence, and may result in the absence of an objection to intercourse. This can lead to the presumption of consent. Duress may be actual or threatened force or violence against the victim or someone close to the victim. Even blackmail may constitute duress. Abuse of power may constitute duress.
