Understanding Sexual Assault Charges

Misdemeanor sexual assault usually concerns unwanted touching of the breast or buttock. It can result in fines of up to $3,000 and/or six months in county jail. Felony sexual assault carries more severe consequences.

It is considered felony sexual assault when:

  • The victim was restrained against their will
  • The victim was medically incapacitated or admitted to a medical institution
  • The victim was told the illegal touching was part of a service
  • Masturbation or genital touching was forced

Felony sexual assault can yield up to four years in prison and up to $2,000 in fines.

You Don't Have to Face These Charges Alone

Every circumstance of these crimes is different and the prosecutor will assess whether felony or misdemeanor charges are appropriate. Either way, it is absolutely critical your legal counsel has the experience and tenacity to make sure these allegations are properly answered with a reduced charge or even a dismissal.
