Which Types Of Conduct Constitute Sexual Abuse Or Assault?

Sexual abuse is often a tense and difficult topic. It can involve people of any age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or marital status. 

Generally, sexual abuse is any type of sexual contact that is offensive or unwanted. Some of the most common forms of sexual abuse include:

  • Rape: non-consensual sexual intercourse
  • Fondling: the touching of another's private parts for the purpose of sexual gratification
  • Child molestation: sexual abuse of a minor or child
  • Dating violence: any act against a partner or ex-partner that occurs during the course of a dating relationship, such as physical abuse, sexual assault, emotional abuse, or stalking
  • Sexual harassment: unwanted sexualized behavior or conduct that can be verbal and/or physical and may often occur in the workplace

The above list is by no means all-inclusive. Many victims of sexual abuse in Maryland are often unsure if their traumatic experiences are enough to file a legal claim. It is only after they consult with a sexual assault attorney that they come to understand the gravity of the situation.

Such confusion often stems from the fact that victims aren't familiar with the difference between the criminal and the civil justice systems.

Sexual Abuse Lawsuits vs. Criminal Sexual Abuse Charges

It is the criminal justice system that charges, tries, and sentences individuals who break the law. For instance, someone who steals a vehicle and is caught by police will then be criminally charged by local district attorneys.

On the other hand, the civil justice system provides avenues for citizens to hold others accountable for damages that they suffered. Personal injury lawsuits, for instance, are legal claims filed within the civil justice system.

Victims of sexual abuse need to understand this difference. This is because it is not necessary for a perpetrator of sexual crimes to be criminally charged and found guilty of a crime for a civil sexual abuse lawsuit to be successful. Moreover, a sex crimes perpetrator doesn't need to be charged with any crime at all for a civil claim to be successful in getting victims the compensation they deserve.

If you were the victim of any type of sexual assault or abuse, it is vital that you consult your case with an experienced attorney, as this is one of the only ways for you to know whether you have a valid claim or not.

You owe it yourself to know your rights after a traumatizing experience. Contact the Maryland Injury Guys today for a free and confidential sexual assault lawsuit consultation.
