WHAT IS RAPE IN THE FIRST DEGREE (RAPE 1) IN OREGON? 

   ORS 163.375 Rape in the first degree. [Known as Rape I or Rape 1]

  (1) A person who has sexual intercourse with another person commits the crime of rape in the first degree if:

   (b) The victim is under 12 years of age;

   (c) The victim is under 16 years of age and is the person’s sibling, of the whole or half blood, the person’s child or the person’s spouse’s child; or

Rape 2 and Rape 1 are Ballot Measure 11 offenses that come with significant prison sentences.  Rape III is a felony but not a Measure 11 offense.  Rape 2 and Rape 3 are referred to as "statutory rape" in some states; however, Oregon law does not use that term.  Rape convictions almost always come with a sex offender registration requirement.
