Sexual assault is a broad category defining any kind of sexual contact or penetration of someone who has not given consent.
At Jones Law Office, we provide representation for ALL types of sexual assault including the following:
• Sexual misconduct
• Statutory rape
• Child molestation
• Sexual battery
Rape is defined as non-consensual sexual intercourse or sexual acts. This may be committed by physical force, threat of force or injury, inability to give consent- either physically or mentally, and other forms of duress for the victim. The punishment for conviction can range from 3 years to 40 years in prison and 10,000 dollars in fines. However, the punishment to one’s reputation long outlasts the time served and the money paid as family, friends, and future employers no longer view you the same.
Sexual misconduct can encompass any sexual contact of a minor (14 or 15 years of age) by someone 18 years old or older. This can be elevated to statutory rape if the perpetrator is at least 21 years old and the sexual contact is sexual intercourse. These offenses apply even if there were no aggravating factors leading to the sexual activity. However, with added aggravating factors one can be charged with up to a Level 1 Felony.
Child molestation involves sexual touching or contact with a person under the age of 18.
Sexual battery is defined by touching someone without consent in order to cause sexual arousal for the victim or the perpetrator.
