Sexual Assault Attorney

Call a Utah Defenders sexual assault attorney today.

Sexual assault can result in the same penalties as rape.

In Utah, sexual assault occurs in circumstances not amounting to rape, object rape, or sodomy, or an attempt to commit one of those sex crimes, when a person touches the private areas of the victim’s body without the victim’s consent.  Sexual assault, like rape, can result in a life sentence in prison if the accused is found to have cause the victim serious bodily harm.  Sexual assault is generally a first or second degree felony.  In other words, it is one of the most serious crimes a person can commit and carries some of the harshest penalties including, in addition to a prison sentence, having to register as a sex offender.

Aggravated Sexual Assault

Aggravated sexual assault is even more serious than sexual assault and occurs when the accused used a dangerous weapon while committing the offense, was assisted by one or more persons, or threatened to kill or injure someone if the victim did not submit to the perpetrator’s sexual advances.  Aggravated sexual assault is a first degree felony and can carry a life sentence in prison.
