Rape and Sexual Assault
Rape is defined as engaging in sexual intercourse with another person without that person’s consent. Sexual assault is sometimes synonymous with rape, though that is not always the case. Both may be related, but there is a difference between the two from a legal standpoint. Sexual assault refers to any sexual contact or sexual act performed on another person without that person’s consent.
Other Sex Crimes
Another sex crime is child molestation or child sexual abuse allegations, in which an adult engages in some form of sexual contact with a child. Cases of statutory rape refer to instances where an adult engages in a consensual sexual act with a minor who is sexually mature but under the legal age (18) of consent. Simply being accused of a child-related sex crime can make it seem as if the world is against you, but a charge is not a conviction. You have a right to tell your side of things, and your attorney is there to ensure the court remembers that.
