 Forcible Rape

What is Second-Degree Forcible Rape?

Under North Carolina Statute §14-27.3, second-degree forcible rape is defined as having vaginal intercourse with a victim against her will and with the use of force. The charge can also be levied if the victim has a mental or physical disability.

Penalties for Second Degree Rape

Second-degree forcible rape is a Class C felony. Under North Carolina law, if you plead guilty to or are convicted of this offense you can be sentenced to 44 to 182 months in prison. This offense is also considered a “sexually violent offense,” which means that those convicted are also required to be listed on the public sex offender registry.

Attempted Second Degree Forcible Rape

It is a crime in North Carolina to even attempt to commit this offense—in fact, it is a Class D felony, punishable by 38 to 80 months in prison. Under the law, a person can be charged with attempted second-degree forcible rape if he was unsuccessful in achieving penetration.
