What are the 2 different types of sex crimes?

There are two different major sex crimes in Tennessee. One is sexual battery and the other is rape. And it's also defined by age, for example, sexual battery is the touching of a breast and other private parts. It is aggravated sexual battery if the child is 13 or under. So if you touch a 12-year old you just committed statutory rape.

Rape can be accomplished also by two different ways, rape, aggravated rape, and then there's child rape. Rape is a class B felony and aggravated rape is a class A felony. Aggravated rape where there's more than one person involved or they drugged someone or they used force, violence, coercion to have it.
