How Does Colorado Law Define Rape?

Rape, also referred to as sexual assault, is the nonconsensual penetration of someone else for the purposes of sexual gratification. As such, it can include vaginal, anal, or oral intercourse that occurs against someone’s consent or while:

  • A victim is asleep, in a coma, or otherwise physically helpless.
  • A victim is intoxicated beyond the point of being able to consent.

In the event an alleged victim is younger than 17—the age of consent in Colorado—statutory rape charges may come into play.
