I wonder how helpful it would be to look at CURRENT law?
The most serious rape offense is Rape in the 1st degree which is a person has sexual intercourse with another person and:
1) the victim is subjected to forcible compulsion by the person;
2) the victim is under a certain age (regardless of consent); or
3) the victim is incapable of consent by reason of mental defect, mental incapacitation or physical helplessness.
I kept hearing people talking about forcible rapes with victims who are drunk -- that's already Rape in the First Degree. Or, victims who are passed out -- that's already Rape in the First Degree.
