Rs 14:43 Third Degree Rape

§43. Third degree rape

A. Third degree rape is a rape committed when the anal, oral, or vaginal sexual

intercourse is deemed to be without the lawful consent of a victim because it is committed

under any one or more of the following circumstances:

(1) When the victim is incapable of resisting or of understanding the nature of the

act by reason of a stupor or abnormal condition of mind produced by an intoxicating agent

or any cause and the offender knew or should have known of the victim's incapacity.

(2) When the victim, through unsoundness of mind, is temporarily or permanently

incapable of understanding the nature of the act and the offender knew or should have known

of the victim's incapacity.

(3) When the victim submits under the belief that the person committing the act is

someone known to the victim, other than the offender, and such belief is intentionally

induced by any artifice, pretense, or concealment practiced by the offender.

(4) When the offender acts without the consent of the victim.

B. Whoever commits the crime of third degree rape shall be imprisoned at hard

labor, without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence, for not more than

twenty-five years.

C. For all purposes, "simple rape" and "third degree rape" mean the offense defined

by the provisions of this Section and any reference to the crime of simple rape is the same

as a reference to the crime of third degree rape. Any act in violation of the provisions of this

Section committed on or after August 1, 2015, shall be referred to as "third degree rape".
