    Question: How many years can you get for rape?

    Answer: The legal term for rape is 'sexual assault'. Arizona Law (ARS § 13-1406) says someone commits Sexual Assault if they 'intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact with any person without consent of such person'.

    Sexual assault is a class 2 felony, and a person convicted of it is not eligible for suspension of sentence, probation, pardon or release until the full sentence is served.

    If the victim of a sexual assault or rape is under fifteen years of age, then it is called a 'dangerous crime against children' and it carries more severe penalties (ARS 13-604.01).

    If the sexual assault involved the intentional use of a date rape drug, then the sentence for the offense shall be increased by three years.

    On the first offense of sexual assault, there is a Minimum prison sentence of 5.25 years with a maximum or 14 years. On the second offense, the minimum term is 7 years and the maximum is 21 years. And on the third, the minimum is 14 years with a maximum of 28 years.

    If the sexual assault involved the intentional infliction of serious physical injury, the person may be sentenced to life imprisonment and is not eligible for suspension of sentence, probation, pardon or release from confinement until at least twenty-five years have been served or the sentence is commuted.

    I was sexually harassed many times, I have lost control of myself. I am slowly destroying myself... Maybe publicating it through here will somehow help me. It is difficult when no one trys to understand your conduct, they think it is sooo easy, huh? hahaha. I never did anything to my father, no one did. But that is life. I hope whoever has gone through this has a different outcome than me. Be strong and put them in jail before you can't even forgive yourself.

    I have a boyfriend that just went to jail, and it is somthing serious his mom wont even tell me. So i went on my own and looked around for anything that could help. Murder, rape, or burglary is serious enough i can think of. I was just wondering do you have a exspensive bail for rape, and or will you get out on a bail. His bail is 2,500 dollars in i dont know what to do if you have any information or anything
