Whether the respondent has taken advantage of a position of influence over the complainant may be a factor in determining consent. Non-forcible acts include unlawful sexual acts where consent is not relevant, such as sexual contact with an individual under the statutory age of consent, as defined by Minnesota law, or between persons who are related to each other within degrees wherein marriage is prohibited by law.
The victim is never to blame in the case of sexual assault, regardless of the situation surrounding the perpetration of the crime.
“Once that started with the first partner I had, I haven’t been able to stop.
I’ve done it with one night stands, other boyfriends that I’ve had.
If the complainant is mentally or physically incapacitated or impaired so that the complainant cannot understand the fact, nature, or extent of the sexual situation, there is no consent; this includes conditions due to alcohol or drug consumption, or being asleep or unconscious.
