There are numerous defenses to this type of charge. Remember that the element of consent must be in place in order to secure a conviction. You may have been under the impression that the other person involved did, in fact, consent to and knowingly wished to engage in the sexual act.

Another factor is whether or not the other person showed actual physical resistance. Whether or not they do this, does not mean that he or she consented to the act. Ultimately, it will be up to the jury to look at the circumstances and determine what really should be the outcome.
