Indecent and Sexual Assault

 

Sexual and indecent assault is a serious offence and anyone found committing an indecent act can potentially face a significant term of imprisonment. Indecent assault can include acts that some may not consider as an offence such as:

  •          kissing someone without their consent, or who might not be consenting;
  •          touching someone without their consent, or who might not be consenting.

 

Other types of indecent or sexual assault offences can cover more serious matters, such as rape, attempted rape, sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated sexual offences and indecency.

Sexual and indecent assault are serious offences, and if you need legal help in regards to a criminal law matter, you can find a lawyer who will be able to help you with your issue via our extensive legal database, no matter where in Australia you may be.
