Any form of sexual contact that occurs without the full, capable consent of two adults is sexual assault. Sadly, cases like this are still all too common, as the recent spotlight on sexual assault shows.
Victims of sexual abuse and assault can experience tragic and long-lasting emotional, mental and physical effects long after the abuse has occurred.
They often find themselves in need of medical care for the physical and mental distress they’ve faced, along with a financial burden due to medical expenses and the potential loss of wages due to missing work.
Then there is the legal battle to defend their claim and get the help they deserve.
Examples of sexual assault include, but are not limited to:
Statistically, women are more likely to be victims of sexual assault (9 in 10 victims of sexual assault are female). However, anyone can be the victim of sexual assault and sexual abuse, including women, men, children, teenagers, and seniors.
Sadly, most cases of sexual assault are perpetrated by someone the victim knows, such as a friend, babysitter, teacher, or colleague, to name a few.
