Sexual Assault

The United States has a strict criminal system to ensure that people who commit crimes receive appropriate penalties. The criminal system has identified a large number of crimes. Some crimes are minor and almost insignificant. Other crimes, however, are much more serious and receive a lot attention. Among these serious crimes is sexual assault.

First of all, it is important to note that sexual assault can be committed by men and women, and it can be done against both men and women. Contrary to what people automatically think about when they think about sexual assault, sexual assault is not just the case of a man sexually assaulting a woman.

Sexual assault is a crime that can occur in any number of ways. While the term "assault" makes it seem that sexual assault has to be an extreme, violent crime, this is not always the case. Sexual assault can be as simple as groping someone else or even possibly making inappropriate sexual advances towards someone else.

Sexual assault, however, does also consist of violent crimes. An extreme case of sexual assault is rape. But sexual assault can also be attempted rape. Even if someone does not intend to rape another individual, sexual assault can occur if someone tries to become physically close with someone else without that individual's consent.

Sexual assault of any form is a serious crime. If you have been charged with sexual assault it is important to take the proper steps to mount your defense.
