Athens Rape Laws

There are a number of ways in which one can be accused of rape. One is by using force to impose sexual penetration. Force, in this case, can mean physical harm as well as threats or intimidation. An individual can also be charged with rape if he or she engages in sex with a person who is intoxicated by drug/alcohol or is asleep or unconscious.

The punishment for rape may include a prison sentence of 25 years to life without parole. If released, probation is required and the individual must register on a sexual offender list.

Children under the age of 16 are legally unable to consent to sexual intercourse. An individual accused of have sex with a minor under the age of consent can be charged with statutory rape. The penalties for this offense may include one to 20 years behind bars and mandatory registration as a sex offender.
