Sexual assault happens more times than people want to admit. The amount of victims who suffer in silence is unfathomable. The term sexual assault refers to sexual contact or behavior that occurs without explicit consent of the recipient. The following are considered forms of sexual assault:

  • Unwanted fondling or sexual touching
  • Indecent exposure, often times this can occur on-line or through text messaging
  • Forcing a victim to perform sexual acts, such as oral sex
  • Penetration of the victim’s body
  • Attempted rape or rape

Sexual assault can occur anywhere, but all too many times it happens in academic or sports settings. A healthy and safe school is important and expected. Sexual assault in any form is against the law and should not be tolerated. Around seven out of 10 sexual assaults are committed by someone who is known to the victim.

Sexual assault in academic and sports settings is a common problem that often goes unreported. One in four female undergraduates will experience some form sexual assault while in college. The biggest factors that prevent these attacks from being reported are the fear of being blamed, and distrust in higher authorities.

Andrus Wagstaff, PC, is committed to holding offenders and the organizations which enable them, accountable for their actions. We want to encourage those who have been a victim to come forward and speak to an attorney. Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted.
