How Can You Fight An Assault By Penetration Allegation?
If you are charged with assault by penetration, we will hear your side of the story and review the allegation made against you and advise you on whether you should plead guilty or not guilty, as well as making you aware of the strength of any defence you may have.
A key issue for cases of assault by penetration is that of consent, and this will need to be considered in detail before you are advised on plea. You will be required to consider the steps you had taken to judge consent, and these steps will help determine how reasonable your belief of consent was.
Assault by penetration can be committed against a male or female, and committed by a male or female.
Alternative offences include attempt assault by penetration and sexual assault.
Section 2 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 is drafted in a wide enough way for penetration by the penis to be included in the charge, but these incidences should be charged as rape.
Assault by penetration is a serious charge carrying a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, it is therefore vital that you seek specialist help from assault by penetration solicitors as soon as possible. If you are being investigated, do not wait to be charged as vital evidence may be difficult to secure the longer you wait.
