The crime of rape becomes a greater injustice when the victim is looked at as a non-victim. The suspects, in most instances, are given the benefit of the doubt. When a rape test is administered, and intercourse is established, the testimonial of the victim should be given more consideration than what is given because it is a serious crime just like murder. I believe that when the suspect is found guilty, the rapist should receive life in prison or a punishment that matches the crime. The actual act of rape by definition of law is the penetration by the perpetrator against one’s will.
