What Is A Sexual Assault Charge?
Sexual assault is defined as any unwanted touching that violates the sexual integrity of the victim.
This can happen between adults, or with minors and children. In the latter case, charges of sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching can be involved.
Fighting To Protect Your Best Interests
Sexual offence charges carry a stigma unlike other criminal offences. The allegation itself can permanently damage your reputation. Many people may conclude that you are guilty without giving you a fair hearing. Conviction can lead to long terms of imprisonment and registration on the Sex Offender Registry.
An accusation is not the same as guilt. Our lawyers strongly uphold the principle that you are innocent until proven guilty and will work tirelessly to safeguard your rights and your reputation.
