Have you been charged with sexual assault? DeMelo Law can help. In order to be convicted of sexual assault, the Crown must prove that you had voluntary, sexual contact and that the complainant did not consent to this contact. The complainant’s consent (or lack thereof) is determined subjectively by looking at the complainant’s internal state of mind at the time of the alleged event(s). Depending on the circumstances and the age of the complainant, the Crown may seek a higher sentence as well as certain conditions, such as listing your name on the National Sex Offender Registry.
We understand that sexual assault charges can be stressful because of the sentences and stigma attached to them.
