Try going to your state's sex offender registry (if you have one). It should tell you there what the difference is.

For Michigan, it is:

1st Degree: includes Penetration plus any one of circumstances 1-10
Penalty: Felony; any number of years in prison with life maximum.

2nd Degree: includes Contact plus any one of circumstances 1-10
Penalty: Felony; up to 15 years in prison

3rd Degree: includes Penetration plus either circumstance 11, 12, 13
Penalty: Felony; up to 15 years in prison

4th Degree: includes Contact plus either circumstance 12 or 13 (except "e")
Penalty: Misdemeanor; up to 2 years in jail.

MULTIPLE VARIABLES/CIRCUMSTANCES (CSC OFFENSES):

1. Victim under 13 years old

2. Victim 13, 14, 15/Blood-Affinity

3. Victim 13, 14, 15/Same Household

4. Victim 13, 14, 15/Position of Authority

5. Felony

6. Multiple Actors/Force

7. Multiple Actors/Victim Incapacity

8. Weapon

9. Personal Injury/Force

10. Personal Injury/Victim Incapacity

11. Victim 13, 14, 15 years old

12. Victim’s Incapacity

13. Force or Coercion

a. Actual Application

b. Threats

c. Extortion

d. Medical Treatment

e. Element of Surprise

What is the difference - in layman's terms - in 2nd degree sexual assault and 3rd degree sexual assault?

Do they vary state to state?
As I am sure they vary state to state - what if the offender is a juvenile?

The sexual assault in second degree is an icreassed offense than the third degree, in the first one there will be added facts like the victim's age, situation in which has happened the crime (at night), situation of the own assaultant (parent or relative), etc; however it is true that each one of these added facts differs from State to State.

It's not the girls job to prove sex assault...if the young girl reported a sexual incident with someone older than her...it's the job of your local police to investigate and gather evidence. In many places, the amount of time that has passed is "mostly" irrelevant.

If penetration occured or not, or other elements. Are we doing your homework for you? ;)

It depends on the state. Each state has laws that clearly spell out the elements of each degree. In the state I worked in, there were five levels. !st degree was the worst and 5th degree was the lesser charge. 1st degree normally involved penetration whereas 4th or 5th degree was for incidents such as exposing oneself, fondling, etc.
