'No doesn't always mean no'

A loophole in North Carolina law prevents women from revoking consent during sex even if their partner turns violent.
When Amy Guy’s estranged husband, Jonathan Wayne Guy, showed up drunk at her home in December, she decided consenting to sex was the “safer” option.
“Since he was getting angry, I figured it would be better to go ahead and agree to the sex because I figured that was the safer thing for me to do,” Guy told WRAL this week.
When the sex turned violent, Guy said that she begged him to stop. But he refused.
Guy reported the crime and her husband was charged with second-degree rape. But the charge was later dropped due to a 1979 North Carolina Supreme Court case which ruled that consent cannot be revoked once sex begins.
