What Constitutes Sexual Assault?

The term sexual assault can refer to any number of sexually motivated actions which have come to be defined under Article 120 of the UMCJ. Revisions introduced in 2007 and after increased the scope of what could be considered sexual assault and the severity of punishments for those convicted. Now, the accused may face a general court martial as well as minimum sentences. Under current regulations, any bodily touching that is deemed to be of a sexual nature can lead to charges.

Sexual assault can occur when a person engages in sexual actions and the victim:

  • Is placed in fear for their health or safety
  • Incurs or is threatened with bodily harm
  • Does not consent to the sexual act
  • Cannot consent due to impairment of drugs or alcohol
  • Is asleep or unconscious when the act occurs
