What is the legal definition of rape in Oklahoma?

Rape is when someone (other than your spouse) has sexual intercourse with you without your consent:

  • by force; or
  • if you are mentally incapacitated (for example, if you were drugged, unconscious, etc).

It can be committed by someone who is of the opposite sex or the same sex.

Rape by a spouse is defined as when your spouse threatens or uses force or violence to have intercourse with you.1

If you have been raped by a spouse or intimate partner, continue reading the rest of the information in the following sections.  Also, see our Marital / Partner Rape page for more information on rape within relationships.
