People v. Leal, No. B211365

By FindLaw Staff on December 28, 2009 7:48 AM

Defendant's conviction for rape and sexual penetration by artifice, pretense or concealment and related crimes is affirmed where: 1) the evidence supports a finding that defendant intended to and did induce the victim into believing he was her husband, and for that reason submitted to his sexual advances; 2) the evidence was sufficient to satisfy the force element of the crime of assault with intent to commit rape; and 3) court did not err in failing to instruct the jury on simple assault as a lesser included offense to charge of assault with intent to commit rape or another sexual offense.
