Oregon is noted for its vastly diverse and stunning landscapes. And if anyone has a case of rape by fraud, it might also become known as the state that upheld honesty in sexual relations!
Oregon has several terms for sexual misconduct including rape, unlawful sexual penetration, and sexual abuse. Most of their laws require forcible compulsion or for the victim to be incapable of consent by reason of mental defect, mental incapacitation, or physical helplessness.
But Oregon has a law called “Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree” that prohibits sexual contact without “consent.” As Model Penal Code and the world knows the definition of “consent, it’s “knowledgeable and informed agreement,” not just “agreement.” “Just agreement” is “assent” not “consent.” So if Prosecutors in Oregon follow the letter of the law, and understand the concept of consent, people who are defrauded of sex in Oregon, should file their cases with the authorities.
In Oregon, Sexual Assault in the Third Degree is a Class A Misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year of jail time and a fine of $6,250.
