Penalties for Object Rape 

A person convicted of object rape is guilty of a first-degree felony punishable by a minimum of five years to life in prison.

If during the commission of the crime, the defendant caused serious bodily injury to another, or if the defendant was younger than 18 years old, he or she may face 15 years to life in prison.

If at the time of the commission of the object rape, the defendant was previously convicted of a grievous sexual crime, he or she may also face 15 years to life in prison.
