Forcible rape is another disturbing crime that is reported on criminal reports. It is defined as being sexual assault in which the guilty party forces the innocent party to have sexual intercourse against their will. Intercourse or sexual penetration occurs without consent, either through force or by engaging in activity with someone who cannot adequately give consent.
Robbery is considered a felony once a person is convicted of it, as it is defined as a violent crime. The difference between robbery and burglary is the use of force, fear or coercion in order to take someone else’s property.
Aggravated assault may be defined differently by different types of jurisdictions, but generally speaking it is an assault in which a deadly weapon is used. Aggravated assault can include the intention to do severe bodily harm to a person, to cause severe injury to another person, to engage in sexual activity with a minor who is not of age to give consent and to cause harm or injury with a motor vehicle.
