Rape Charges in Indiana

Under Indiana law, rape occurs when you knowingly or intentionally force another person to engage in sexual intercourse or some type of sexual conduct.

The charge of rape must involve one of the following:

  • Force or the threat of force
  • No awareness on the part of the victim that it occurred (such as when passed out from drugs or alcohol)
  • The victim is mentally disabled to such a degree that he or she cannot give consent

Rape is charged as a Level 3 felony, punishable by a minimum of three years in prison. It is charged as a Level 1 felony if the act involves the use of a deadly weapon, serious bodily injury to the victim, or the use of drugs. The Level 1 felony carries a prison term of 20 years.
