Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without consent. Sexual assault may include forced kissing, fondling, rape, or attempted rape. Sexual assault is one of the most under-reported crimes so there is no accurate way to know the true prevalence, but statistics show that every 2 minutes, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Sexual Assault is NEVER the victim’s fault! It doesn’t matter what he/she was wearing, or how much he/she has had to drink and nobody ASKS to be sexually assaulted. 44% of sexual assault survivors are under age 18 and 15% are under the age of 12.
