Sexual assault is defined under the Criminal Code of Canada as any form of unwanted sexual contact or activity committed without consent. It does not depend solely on contact with any specific part of the human anatomy but rather the act of a sexual nature that violates the sexual integrity of the victim.
Types of Sexual Assault Charges
- – Sexual Assault: Unwanted sexual contact or activity without consent.
- – Sexual Assault with a Weapon, Threats to a Third Party, or Causing Bodily Harm: Includes the use of a weapon, threats to harm someone else, or causing bodily harm to the victim.
- – Aggravated Sexual Assault: This charge is levied when the victim is wounded, maimed, disfigured, or their life is endangered during the assault.
The consequences of a conviction can include imprisonment, fines, probation, and other collateral consequences such as inclusion on the National Sex Offender Registry.
