Sexual Offences

The sexual offences category includes the offences of ‘sexual assault’, ‘sexual interference’, ‘sexual exploitation’, ‘invitation to sexual touching’, and other such offences. Sexual offences allegations can be by family members or strangers; adults or children. They can be alleged to have occurred in the recent past or years ago. Depending on the nature of the sexual offences allegations and when they were alleged to have occurred, the matter may proceed as either a summary conviction matter or an indictable matter. The maximum penalties for indictable matters are higher than for summary conviction matters.
