Burnaby Sexual Assault Lawyers

In Burnaby, sexual assault is defined as any unwanted sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the consent of the victim. This can include actions such as rape, sexual harassment, and inappropriate touching.

According to data from the Burnaby RCMP, the majority of sexual assault perpetrators in the city are male, with around 90% of cases involving male perpetrators and female victims. However, it is important to note that any can commit and be the target of sexual assault, regardless of gender identity.

The ongoing effects of sexual assault on survivors can be significant and long-lasting. Many survivors experience emotional and psychological trauma, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The impact of sexual assault can be further exacerbated by the social stigma and shame that many survivors experience. This can make it difficult for them to seek help and support, and may lead to feelings of isolation and disconnection from others.

Sexual assault is a serious and prevalent issue in Burnaby. Recently, a record number of sexual assaults were reported to police throughout the province. Is essential for individuals to understand the importance of consent and to take steps to prevent sexual assault from occurring. This includes actively listening to and respecting the boundaries of others, and speaking out against inappropriate behavior.
