Third-degree rape is constituted when a person twenty-one years old and above have sexual relations with a minor under the age of seventeen.

A second-degree rape charge occurs when a person whom is 18 years or older has sexual intercourse with a child under the age of fifteen. If the perpetrator is 18 and the child is 15, then any charges would be mitigated due to the age difference being under four years during the time of the offense. Second-degree rape is punishable by law up to seven years in prison and is a class D felony.

In the next four lines the writer describes the loud movements of the dance and the frown on the mother’s face that would not go away (lines 5 -8).

This leads to a handful of fights with Eddie the bartender. Another example is when his lover Wanda, sleeps with Eddie, and Henry becomes emotionally distraught and begins to argue and become confrontational with Wanda. This leads up to a scene where Wanda beats Henry over the head and leaves the apartment. Henry then begins an alcohol binge drinking session in which he throws Wanda’s clothes out the window and spends a day in a drunken stupor in his apartment. Alcohol creates a sense of well-being in some, and euphoria in others which adds to the allure of drinking alcohol to feel better (Doweiko, 2012).
The outcome following a sexual assault is sometimes referred to as being worse than the actual assault itself (The Hunting Grounds, 2015). Following the assault, the college campus, police, criminal justice system, media, and various other forms of institutions are known to re-victimize these individuals whom have already been previously assaulted. These numerous institutions are suppose to help, and report fairly and justly. Unfortunately that’s not the case in Liz Seccuro’s book, Crash Into Me, or in the film The Hunting Ground. Every single victim experienced a form of revictimization whether that is through false reports in the media, or the college campuses’ failure to report or help sexual assault victims.
A crime is a crime but it should trialed fairly regardless the age and the raise of others. Kenneth Young a 14 year old who was involved in an armed robbery was sentenced unfairly. Justice prevailed in Kenneth Young's sentencing, because of immaturity, teens or even kids are getting sentenced harder than adults, and rehabilitation. At the age of 14 everyone has a slit of immaturity and they don’t think with their head but with random reaction. It has not just been proven but also studied, “Brain imaging studies reveal that the regions of the adolescent brain responsible for controlling thoughts actions and emotions are fully devolved,” (Garinger 1).
During the freshman year of high school, I noticed that there are monthly school events that take place during lunch time and so, I would always visit them and have a great time. An example of a popular school event would be Back to School Blast. At this event, students can play games, such as water dunk, sumo wrestling and watch live musical performances. As time passed, I always wondered who ran these events because they always turned out fantastic and it seemed very enjoyable to organize. At first, I thought it was a club so, I went around asking other students if they know how I can join it.

A person (D) is guilty of this offence if he intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person (V) with his penis and V does not consent to the penetration and D does not reasonably believe that V consents. Since rape is restricted to penile penetration it can only be committed by a man on a woman or another man and can only be dealt with in the crown court and any person guilty of this offence can be imprisoned for life. Rape can also happen when the victim cannot physically give consent, such as whilst she was drunk, passed out or high. Rape can also happen when the victim cannot legally give consent, such as if she is underage. Sections 75 and 76 apply to an offence under this section.
