It depends on several factors. A person could get anywhere from probation to life imprisonment for committing rape. It may depend on where the rape took place, and on the severity or degree of the crime. Every single rape case should prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Please do not mull it over, press charges immediately!

Many rapists serve a little amount of time this is why they are able to enter society and do the same thing over and over again weather he or she serves a little time this must be reported and this hard up criminal needs to be put away for this crime prosecution is one way to prevent other innocent victims from being attacked rape victims should always remember this is not their fault and should seek counseling to move on with their lives no means no and if not consented this person should be taken to the law and his but put behind bars where the same should happen to them some people may not agree but as the saying goes an eye for an eye do the right thing and put him or her away

not long enough and the aggravating circumstances play a big part

I say it's not nearly enough because I think every rapist should get a life sentence. Yes, it's worth pressing charges because you are going to stop the rapist from raping another innocent girl. Also, by pressing charges this is going to help you to put this behind. It's going to be hard for you to come to terms with this. But the satisfaction of knowing that you put him behind bars is going to show him that he no longer has power over you. If you didn't report this then do it today. Do not be afraid to go to the police and tell them what this person did to you. The police are there for you to help you and give you support. Go to the police station and tell them that you want to report a rape. They are going to question you but you have nothing to worry about. Tell them the truth and they will help you and they will put this guy in jail.
