Penalties for Rape in Ohio

Rape is a violent crime involving forced sexual intercourse, or threats of force, on another person. This include situations where a person can't resist or consent to sexual intercourse because they are unconscious, mentally incapacitated, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Sexual intercourse with a child under 13 is also considered rape. Other forms of sexual contact with a child under 13 (gross sexual imposition) is also illegal. The penalties for rape include:

  • Incarceration (minimum of 5 years)
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Court-ordered counseling
  • Sex offender registration

Sexual battery is a similar type of sex crime involving a person who engages in sexual conduct with someone under 18, and who also holds a position of authority such as a teacher or parent. It is charged as a third-degree felony and is punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison. Attorneys at our firm are tough litigators that will build a strong defense when fighting rape charges.
