The crime of rape involves forcing another person to engage in sexual intercourse, anal sex, or other sexual activity involving even the slightest form of penetration, without that person’s consent or against the person’s will. In some states, this crime is referred to as sexual battery and the terms “rape” and “sexual battery” are used interchangeably.
Armed robbery is a theft that is combined with use of force and the presence, pretense, or use of a weapon. It is considered a higher category of offenses relating to thefts and the use of force. Even though many of the elements of theft, robbery, and armed robbery overlap, an armed robbery conviction has significantly harsher consequences.
Rape can occur when the offender and victim have a pre-existing relationship (sometimes called "date rape"), or even when the offender is the victim's spouse. To convict an offender for rape, some form of sexual penetration, however slight, must occur.
Difference Between Voluntary Manslaughter and Involuntary Manslaughter There is a difference between voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Voluntary manslaughter occurs when the perpetrator intentionally kills another person without prior intent to do so, such as in the heat of passion. The perpetrator could be described as having malice, though only at the time the killing occurs, not prior to the incident.
