Some reasons that the victim may not be able to give definitive consent are if they:
- Are drunk
- Are drugged

Rape Allegations in Court
If a victim comes forth with allegations of rape, the sexual offense will be reported to the police. At that point, the police will question the alleged victim, and he or she will be examined by a doctor. Evidence collected from the hospital will likely be used against the offender in court.
If the victim and the alleged offender were in a relationship prior to the nonconsensual sexual act, it may be considered date rape or spousal rape.
