What is Child Sexual Assault?
Child Sexual Assault is a criminal act that refers to the sexual touching, short of penetration, against a minor victim. This offense encompasses virtually all sexual contact and activity other than penetration of any kind. Examples include touching someone under age, without their consent, on the buttocks, anus, breasts or genitals such as any part of the penis or vagina. Child Sexual Assault may occur by either an adult male or adult female against either a girl or a boy. Consent and Mistake of Fact are not potential defenses to this crime.
If you have been charged with Child Sexual Assault, it is important to seek legal representation immediately in order to protect your rights and minimize the impact that a charge of his nature may have on your life.
