June 6, 2014

Sexual assault is a criminal act that is defined as intentional physical contact of a sexual nature that occurs without consent. This can involve penetrating the mouth, anus or genitals of another person without their consent.

Consent is a critically important element of this offense. To give consent is to knowingly and intentionally agree to participate in an action. If someone refuses to participate in sexual activity or is unable to agree to participate, they have not given consent. Sexual contact without the consent of everyone involved is a crime.
