Maybe your simple handshake was misinterpreted by a passerby, or you could have just given some spirited encouragement that you thought was harmless. Touching a woman’s breast or buttocks without her permission would be considered a Sexual Assault.
The Penalties of Sexual Assault are Harsh. Sexual Assault may land you in prison and require you to register as a sex offender. Regardless of the particular charge, any allegation of Sexual Assault can have serious ramifications throughout your life. Prison time? No thanks. Scarred reputation? You don’t deserve that.
