What Is Sexual Battery?

Rape and sexual assault are often confused for one another, and also for sexual battery. The overlaps in definitions can make it difficult to understand just what your charges entail. In turn, this makes it a challenge to protect yourself from the accusations.

An understanding and hardworking attorney in Plano could help you if you are facing the potential consequences of a sexual battery conviction.

Primary Components Of Sexual Battery In Plano

Key details of sexual battery charges that a local lawyer can explain include:

  • Involvement of sexual activity that does not include intercourse or penetration
  • No consent is given by the alleged victim. Consent cannot be given by someone who is a minor, mentally disabled, or rendered physically helpless by substances or materials
  • The defendant intended to complete a sexual act despite not receiving consent from the other party

For many instances of sexual battery defense, the focus remains on consent. Misunderstandings of situations can easily lead to situations in which consent seemed to a reasonable person to have been given. A lack of criminal intent may also be enough grounds to invalidate the charges, or at least lessen them, perhaps to lewd conduct. Our Plano team of lawyers can build a defense for you based on your sexual battery charges and your unique circumstances.
