Sexual Assault
Types of Offences

Sexual Assault Allegations

Sexual assault allegations are some of the most damaging charges that one can face in Canada. This type of assault entails acts of sexual touching or sexual overtone, including unwanted grabbing and rape. Sexual assault charges are complex and require the expertise of a lawyer experienced in handling such and related cases.

Types of Sexual Offences

Sexual Exploitation

Sexual exploitation entails actual or attempted use of a position of power, vulnerability, or trust for sexual purposes. This includes sexual contact with a person between the age of 16 to 18 years by an adult in a position of power, such as a teacher or employer. If you or your loved one are charged with sexual exploitation, reach out to the CLE legal team. We’ll analyze all aspects of the case, including the available evidence and statements, and devise a strong, effective defence strategy to defend you.

Sexual Interference

This involves sexually touching a part of the body of a minor under the age of 16, either directly or indirectly, for sexual purposes. Note that the age of consent was changed from 14 to 16 in 2008. A sexual interference charge can ruin your life. If charged, don’t hesitate to retain an expert attorney. They’ll thoroughly analyze the charges, build a strong defence, and fight to protect your rights, liberties, and character.

Invitation to Sexual Touching

An invitation to sexual touching involves asking, inciting, or compelling a minor under the age of 16 to touch, directly or indirectly, the body of another person in a sexual nature. Note that you can get charged even if the minor you invite to touch another person does not engage in the act. These charges are serious and carry mandatory minimum sentences, including mandatory minimum incarceration of one year. If you’re charged with invitation to sexual touching, seek the services of an experienced and dedicated lawyer to protect your rights and freedoms.

Aggravated Sexual Assault

Aggravated sexual assault includes any sexual assault offences involving wounding, maiming, disfiguring, or endangering another person’s life. These are the most serious sex crimes, and they carry a mandatory minimum jail term of five years and a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. All aggravated sexual assault charges are indictable offences. This makes them more complex, and, therefore, they require a well-versed lawyer to mitigate the charges and attain a favourable outcome.

Child Pornography

These charges entail the production, possession, or distribution of videos, pictures, and literature that depict persons under 18 years old who are involved in sexual activities. Child pornography crimes are serious, and they carry severe penalties upon conviction, including mandatory minimum jail terms. Other consequences of facing such charges include significant negative impacts on your personal and professional life.
