Indiana Rape Law & Penalties
In Indiana, it is a criminal offense to rape or have oral, anal, or vaginal
sex or penetrate the genitals or anus of another without their consent,
with an object by force, threat of force, or while the individual was
incapacitated due to mental disability or unconsciousness. Rape is considered
a Level 3 felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 16 years
and a fine of up to $10,000.
However, if aggravating factors are present such as causing serious bodily
injury, use of a deadly force or weapon, or using date rape drugs, then
the charge is elevated to a Level 1 felony. A Level 1 felony is punishable
by a maximum prison sentence of 40 years and a fine of up to $10,000.
