Sexual Assault Defence Lawyer Vaughan, Ontario
A sexual assault is not just the actual physical act. You could be charged with this offence for merely touching any part of a person’s body in a sexual manner during an assault. Various factors are used by the courts to determine whether the assault was sexual:
- What part of the body was touched?
- What was the nature of the contact?
- What were the circumstances for the contact?
- What gestures or words were accompanied during the act?
- Were they any sexual threats during the assault?
In most cases, the only two witnesses, during a sexual assault, are the victim and suspect being charged with the crime. Police reports presented to the Crown attorneys and court only contain the victim’s account of the events. Rudi Covre ensures your side of the events is heard in order to establish your defence.
