We all know how conversations can drift from one subject to another randomly but a while ago I found myself debating a hypothetical scenario with someone and I was curious about the board’s take on it. I would’ve preferred to post it in the Mayberry, but given the subject matter there’s a risk of the thread getting derailed so I will preemptively put it in the War Room So the scenario is this: Person A coerces Person B into having sex with Person C. Person C is unaware of the coercion and has no reason to believe the intercourse is anything other than consensual. Person B is clearly being raped in this situation. This leads to the questions: From a legal standpoint, who is the rapist in this scenario? If not rape, what would Person A be charged with? If there are any lawyers or law enforcement officers reading this thread, I would appreciate their input.
