If someone, over 18, walked into a store and picked up something, didn’t pay for it, maybe was even nice to the clerk and said hi and bye as they left… maybe they didn’t even know they were stealing for some reason or another… maybe even the clerk was too scared to stop the person because this person was so much bigger and stronger than the clerk…
Did that person still commit a crime?
Of course, they did. DUH.
So why is it any different when a someone is raped?
