Even though a couple may be married, under California law neither spouse has the right to demand that the other spouse have sexual intercourse with them. Spousal rape (sometimes also called “marital rape”) may be punished just as harshly as other sex crimes. In certain cases, some prosecutors may even pursue an additional charge of domestic violence against you, which could result in penalties for both spousal rape and a violent crime.
If you are convicted of a spousal rape crime in California, you could serve anywhere from 3 to 8 years in state prison, receive a fine of up to $10,000, be subject to formal probation and be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.
