Types of Sexual Assault in Oklahoma

  • Rape
  • Forcible sodomy
  • Unwanted sexual contact that is aggravated, abusive or wrongful
  • Attempts to commit these acts

In Oklahoma sex crime cases, consent is defined as a verbal recognition of or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at hand by a competent person. Lack of verbal or physical resistance, or submission resulting from the offender’s use of force or threat of force, does not constitute consent. Without the other person’s consent, these sex acts may be charged as sexual assault in Oklahoma.

The penalties associated with a sexual assault conviction vary, depending on the circumstances of the case and on any prior sexual assault convictions the offender may have.
