Felony Sexual Assault is a forced sexual intercourse through physical and or psychological intimidation.

There are different types of sexual assault such as date sexual assault, statutory sexual assault, and spousal sexual assault. Date sexual assault is a forced sex act between two people whom know one another during a social engagement such as a date or going to dinner. Even though the two people know one another, if a sex act was coerced, it is considered sexual assault. Statutory sexual assault is a sex act between an adult and a minor under the legal age of 18. Even if the minor consents to the sex act, it is still considered statutory sexual assault, because of the age limit. Spousal sexual assault is a forced sex act between a husband and wife. If a husband or wife does not consent to a sex act, and the sex act is forced, it is considered sexual assault.

If a person is convicted of sexual assault, he or she faces a variety of punishments such as:

 

  • Imprisonment for sexual assault
  • Court ordered rehabilitation for sexual assault
  • Monetary fines for sexual assault
  • Loss of the right to vote for sexual assault
  • Loss of the right to own a deadly weapon if convicted of sexual assault
  • Probation requirements for sexual assault convictions

Punishments can be superior if the offender committed statutory sexual assault, has prior criminal convictions, is on probation, or if there are aggravating circumstances.

People who are convicted of sexual assault must list their name on the Sex Offender Registry. According to Sex Offender Registration Act, sex offenders are categorized by risk of re-offense. The court decides if the convicted offender is (low risk), (moderate risk), or (high risk). The court also categorizes each convicted sex offender as a sexual predator, sexually violent offender, or predicate sex offender. If a person’s name is on the Sex Offender Registry, they may have limited employment and housing options, as future landlords and employers look negatively upon sex crime convictions.
