Owing to the seriousness of a Rape allegation, such cases are always dealt with at the Crown Court. In the most severe cases a conviction for Rape can carry a life sentence of imprisonment however, any person being convicted of Rape can expect a substantial custodial sentence.
In the majority of Rape cases there are 2 issues namely, that the act did not take place or that the sexual intercourse was consensual.
The issue of consent can be complicated and be based on a number of factors. To be found guilty of the offence, the defendant must not have reasonably believed that consent was given. When determining the issue of consent the prosecution will ask the court to consider whether the alleged victim had the capacity to give their consent which can depend on their age, mental capacity, intoxication through drink or drugs, etc. They can also ask the court to consider whether the alleged victim was able to freely give their consent without constraint.
