Rape Offenses in Colorado

In general, rape involves engaging in sexual intercourse or some other sexual contact with another person without their consent. Colorado’s criminal code prohibits acts of sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact. Depending on the circumstances, rape can qualify as both or either a sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact.

When a rape is committed through the use of force, intimidation, or threat of force, the offense qualifies as a class 4 felony. If a rape was committed with the help of one or more other persons, or if the victim suffered serious bodily injury as a result, the offense is a class 2 felony. The victim’s inability to consent to sexual contact is a significant factor. Lack of consent can occur in various situations.

Unlawful sexual contact can occur in the following situations:

  • The victim did not give consent regarding the sexual conduct
  • The victim was incapable of appraising the nature of the sexual conduct
  • The victim was physically helpless and had not consented to the sexual conduct
  • The victim was substantially impaired by a drug or other intoxicant
  • The victim was under the age of 18
