What is the difference between rape and sexual assault?

Many people refer to sexual assault and rape interchangeably, but they actually have distinctly different meanings under California law. Sexual assault refers to a broad category of prohibited acts involving unwanted sexual or physical contact, whereas rape refers to the more narrowly defined category of crimes that involve unwanted or non-consensual intercourse.
