Penticton Sexual Assault Lawyers


Sexual assault is a serious crime under the Criminal Code of Canada. It can have a major impact on the lives of survivors.

Sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of their age, gender, or background. It can happen in a variety of settings, including in public places, at home, or at work. No matter where it occurs, sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. It is the responsibility of the perpetrator to respect boundaries and consent.

Consent is an essential element of a healthy and respectful sexual relationship. It refers to an affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. In order for consent to be valid, it must be given freely and willingly, without coercion or manipulation.

Sexual assault is any form of sexual contact or activity that occurs without the explicit and voluntary consent of all parties involved. This can include unwanted touching, groping, fondling, rape, or any other form of sexual contact that is non-consensual.

It is important to recognize that consent is not implied or assumed, and must be actively and enthusiastically given. Lack of protest or resistance does not necessarily constitute consent, and being under the influence of drugs or alcohol can impair a person’s ability to give consent.

Consent is also revocable and can be withdrawn at any time. It is the responsibility of all parties involved in a sexual encounter to ensure that everyone is comfortable and willing to continue with the activity. Proceeding with sexual conduct after consent has been withdrawn is an example of sexual assault. It is a deep betrayal of trust that can lead to serious psychological and financial repercussions.
