The Definition of Sexual Assault in California

According to California law, sexual assault refers to an unwanted sexual encounter in which the person being pursued does not consent. There are a number of ways in which sexual assault can occur. In some cases it involves a person not giving consent and in others it involves a case in which a person was not able to give consent. Note that rape is not the same as sexual assault – it is one example of sexual assault but not all cases of sexual assault are rape.

Forms of Sexual Assault

Rape is the most well-known type of sexual assault and can take the form of date rape, in which the victim knows their attacker, and stranger rape, in which a stranger is the attacker. Other types of sexual assault include fondling, exhibitionism, child abuse, forced sexual acts, voyeurism and attempted rape. These are all serious accusations and simply being accused can change a person’s life for the worse.

Steps to Take if You Were Falsely Accused of Sexual Assault

There is no way around it: Being falsely accused of sexual assault is a scary experience to go through. You likely don’t know what to do or who to turn to. The unfortunate truth is that, in the short term, your life is likely to change. We recommend that you take the following steps:

  • Hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you. You can request a consultation from Chambers Law Firm by calling 714-760-4088.
  • If your attorney recommends that you take a polygraph, take it. If they recommend that you agree to a psychological evaluation, do so. As long as you are honest with your attorney, and they have access to all the evidence, you should follow their advice.
  • Write down what you remember about the time in question. Offer as many details as possible.
  • Compile a list of witnesses who can back up your story or who can attest to your location during the supposed event.
  • Do not talk to the police without an attorney. All you must do is provide them with your name. You do not have to answer any other questions and we strongly recommend that you do not.
