It’s Not Rape In The USVI Says…

Senator Alicia “Chucky” Hansen. Not if you’re married anyway.

Here’s an excerpt from the Source:

During debate Tuesday on a bill to remove V.I. law exempting spouses from several categories of sexual assault and rape, Sen. Alicia “Chucky” Hansen said she did not understand how sex between spouses can be rape, before voting against the measure.

The bill sponsored by Sen. Sammuel Sanes adds in its summary “protections for spouses, men and women, who are the victims of actions that constitute rape or unlawful sexual contact in aggravated domestic violence instances.” [Bill no. 30-0060]

Currently in the V.I. Code, the definitions of aggravated rape, rape in the second and third degree, and unlawful sexual contact all explicitly say it is only rape or sexual assault if the victim is “not the perpetrator’s spouse.” The definition of first degree rape does not include this language. Sanes’ bill simply deletes the phrases “and not the perpetrator’s spouse” from each offense definition.

Wow, that’s all I have to say. First I never knew that this antiquated rape law even existed. Are you serious? So if you’re married you can basically rape the snot out of your spouse with no real legal recourse.

Comment in and let me know how you feel.

Oh, and how about our Honorable SenatorĀ Alicia “Chucky” Hansen, she’s probably single ;)

    What is almost as scary as Hansen’s comments are the remarks from USVITONC in the comments posted after the article. Yikes! Is this person a transplant from the dark ages?

    Chucky is a sick inhumane disgrace to womanhood. She does not understand how women suffered at the hands of rapists. I am encouraging all women NOT to vote for her in 2014.

    All St Thomas registered voters will be “not voting for Sen Hansen” – she will only appear on the STX ballot where she has a huge following that transcends gender. Only the Sen.-at-Large choice appears on both islands ballot.

    Chucky is a criminal, like for real. She used to come by my job daily and harass my boss for bribes. But this is worse, what a horrid woman.

    So does being married in the usvi mean you actually physically own another person’s body. I thought slavery was outlawed. Of all races, this one oughtta know better.
    Maybe she had too big of a lunch.
    Next thing u know she wil be saying its not murder if no-one cares.
