Sexual assault covers a wide variety of conduct and is one of the most litigated offences in criminal law. It can include something as simple as an unwanted hug, kiss, or grope, to much more serious conduct, such as intercourse. The type of sexual offence charged depends on factors such as the victim's age, the extent of sexual contact, and the number of incidents. Penalties for sexual assault offences are devastating, particularly if it includes oral sex or any form of penetration. If you are convicted, you will face up to 16 years in prison and be required to register as a sex offender.
