California Date Rape Law

Under California Penal Code Section 290, if convicted of date rape the penalties may include incarceration for up to eight years, and a possible "strike" on your record under California's "three strike" rule and registration as a sex offender.

An accusation of date rape may occur in a variety of ways. For example, alcohol consumed during a date can interfere with memory to such a degree that the individual the following morning cannot remember that she consented and assumes she has been raped.
