Sexual assault may refer to rape, attempted rape, incest, molestation or other acts of sexual intrusion.
In Bermuda, under the Criminal Code Act, sexual assault is when a person has sexual intercourse with another person without that person’s consent. The offence is no longer called rape within the law books. This Act also recognizes two more forms of sexual assault: serious sexual assault; and aggravated sexual assault.
