What Is Sexual Assault?
According to the law, sexual assault is touching of a sexual nature without the consent of the person being touched. Depending on the circumstances, use of force or hostility may or may not be involved. Likewise, the charge may be elevated to aggravated sexual assault if a weapon was displayed or used. Since the prosecution must prove your guilt in the court of law, potential defences include:
Wrong Perpetrator Was Charged
The Act Does Not Amount to Sexual Assault Under Law
The Perpetrator Mistakenly Believed Consent Was Given
The Perpetrator Was Not Criminally Responsible Due to a Mental Disorder
