What Is Sexual Assault?

People often use the term “sexual assault” interchangeably with “rape,” which is incorrect. Sexual assault is an umbrella term that applies to a number of different sexually based offenses. Examples of sexual assault offenses under Washington law include:

  • Rape in the first degree: Engaging in sexual intercourse without consent by forcible compulsion via threats, kidnap, physical injury, et cetera.
  • Rape in the second degree: Engaging in sexual intercourse with a person without consent and via forcible compulsion, incapacity, authority, et cetera.
  • Rape in the third degree: Engaging in sexual intercourse with a person without consent and where there is a threat of substantial harm
  • Indecent liberties: Attempting forcible contact but not intercourse
  • Molestation
  • “Date rape” or “acquaintance rape”
  • “Statutory rape”: Engaging in sexual intercourse with someone younger than the age of consent

Whether you are being falsely accused of rape by a stranger you met at the bar or a Tinder hookup-gone-wrong has led to accusations of date rape, you need to act quickly to minimize the damage and protect your freedom. Acting proactively and having a lawyer on your side right away can make all the difference.
