    First degree rape = Having vaginal intercourse against the person's will, WHILE using a weapon, inflicting serious harm or with one or more people helping the offender.

    Second degree rape = vaginal intercourse against someone's will.

    Either way, they're both felonies with a sentence of 40 years and/or fine.

    why second-degree? the law calls for rape charges even in "consensual" situations where the victim is mentally impaired or under the influence of alcohol. I wonder what the circumstances were in this case. I'm extremely glad they charged him at all - abuse of a patient under one's care is, to me, as bad as accosting a child. abuse of authority like that, needs to be punished to the farthest extent of the law.
