What is Sexual Assault? Generally, sexual assault is defined as unwanted sexual contact. Legally, sexual assault is an act in which a person sexually touches another person without that person’s consent, or through coercion or physically forcing a person to engage in a sexual act against their will.
In the United States, the definition of sexual assault varies widely among the individual states. However, in most states sexual assault occurs when there is lack of consent from one of the individuals involved. Consent must take place between two adults who are not incapacitated and can change during any time during the sexual act.
