Sexual offences are a serious crime in Canada. Offences can include sexual assault, sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching, and sexual interference. The mere stigma of being accused of a sex crime can irreparably damage a person’s reputation. Sexual assault is an assault of a sexual nature on another person, or any sexual act committed without consent. Although sexual assaults most frequently are by a man on a woman, it may involve any combination of two or more men, women and children.
