Minneapolis Sexual Assault


Prepared to defend you against sexual assault allegations

Sexual assault is any type of sexual activity to which the victim does not give consent. It can include:

  • Inappropriate touching
  • Sexual intercourse against the victim’s will
  • Attempted rape
  • Child molestation

Minneapolis sex assault can be any act that forces a person to join in unwanted sexual contact or attention.  Examples of this include the following:

  • Voyeurism—occurs when someone watches private sexual acts
  • Exhibitionism—takes place when someone exposes himself or herself in public
  • Incest—involves sexual contact between family members
  • Sexual harassment—is when an employee makes unwelcome verbal or physical sexual advances to another employee against his or her wishes.

Sexual assault offenses can also include indecent exposure, prostitution, rape, child sexual abuse, and Internet pornography. Often, there is a fine line between sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Usually a sexual assault occurs when someone touches any part of another person's body in a sexual way without that person's consent, even through clothing.

False allegations

False allegations do occur. Public awareness of sexual abuse has increased and more reports of possible abuse are being made, but not all reports are substantiated.  Even good faith accusations may not be true, and often, false allegations are made to harm the accused.

But even false allegations can be devastating, both to the accused and the victim. Minneapolis sexual assault charges can have an immediate destructive effect upon one’s career, family life, and social standing. If you find yourself the victim of false allegations, a criminal defense attorney is necessary in order to take immediate action to defend yourself.
