Sexual assault is any forced, tricked or manipulated sexual contact, touch and/or penetration against a person’s will. Sexual assault is an act of violence and power, not sexual intimacy or uncontrolled desire. Sexual assault victims may be young or old, single or married, urban or rural, or any gender…no one is immune. This type of abuse can happen anywhere in your home, at work, in your car and is most often committed by someone the person knows and may trust. The effects of sexual assault may be lifelong and devastating, whether it occurs once or repeatedly.
