Rape in California is a felony, and carries with a conviction a number of severe potential punishments. Included as potential punishments are a lengthy prison sentence, as well as lifetime registration as a sex offender.

By law, in order for a defendant to be found guilty of rape, the prosecutor must prove certain specific things. These things are: that he accused engaged in sexual intercourse with another person, and that act was against the person’s will, or without the person’s consent, and accomplished through means of force, violence, duress, or fear.

In order to be found guilty of rape in California, the prosecutor must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the accused is guilty of all abovementioned things.
