What are the possible defenses for rape charges?

Consent: The "victim" may have consented to the intercourse. In some cases, she originally consents but then changes her mind. Then the male must stop unless she fails to effectively communicate her withdrawal.

False Accusations: Many have been accused out of spite or for some other deranged reason. Proof that this occurs is that many people have been released from prison when DNA evidence has proved their innocence.

Mistaken Identity: Sometimes the rape occurs where there is poor lighting or the assailant is wearing a mask. Also a line up or photo display may be faulty and prejudicial. The result is that the wrong person is charged.
