Response to ismnotwasm (Original post)

13. Article leaves out some pretty important details about NC law

 

Yes, a withdrawal of consent after consent was given is not a rape, as defined in the NC statute.

However, that doesnít mean a person canít withdraw consent.

NC has a statute called ďForcible Sexuall OffenseĒ that can be first or second degree just like rape charges here are. Continuing a sexual acts after consent is withdrawn can be charged as that. And is, if the prosecution does their job right. The penalties are the same for both charges.

Itís a bit more complicated than just that with variations for the kind of sexual contact, where vaginal intercourse is the only kind that is considered rape to begin with and the rest are forcible sexual contact from the beginning of there is no consent.

There is also a sexual battery charge that can come into play.

But to say that a woman canít withdraw consent and a person canít be charged if they continue sexual contact after consent is withdrawal is not accurate. The charge wonít be worded the same, but the penalties are just as severe.
