Hello Mark

Wickedness might be defined as an act of cruelty, widely considered to be abhorrent.

Here is the Collins dictionary definition of the adjective wicked:

[www.collinsdictionary.com]

Sin does not need to embrace cruelty, though religious people consider some sins to be both wicked and abhorrent.

For example, homosexuality is not wicked or cruel. However, some religious folks consider it to be sinful.
Love is never wicked.

Ergo, the two are mutually exclusive.

Also, a criminal is a person who perpetrates a criminal act and rape is a criminal act (irrespective of whether or not the rapist is later convicted of the crime, they have still perpetrated a crime by transgressing the law.)
