When is rape not rape?

Time ran a story today about Michael Devlin, the Missouri man who was arrested last month for kidnapping a 13-year-old year old and who kidnapped another child in 2002.

(CLAYTON, Mo.) — A Missouri man accused of kidnapping two boys and holding one for more than four years was charged Monday with forcible sodomy.

This made me ask myself, since when is “forcible sodomy” not rape? My computer tells me that sodomy is “sexual intercourse involving anal or oral copulation”. Okay, so sodomy is sex. If someone forces sex upon me, is that not rape?

Why has Mr. Devlin not been charged with rape of a minor?
