Forced Sexual Acts

Sexual battery involves forced sexual acts or penetration.  Non-consensual does not necessarily mean that the victim attempted to prohibit the sexual act.  It may also mean that the victim was not of age to make an intelligent decision on the matter.  The penalties for sexual battery will depend on the type of action involved and the age of the alleged victim.  In Ohio, sexual battery may also include sexual conduct on another person that was impaired significantly or unaware of the sexual act.  Those that have a prior criminal record may face additional penalties.
