Preventing Sexual Assault is Everyone's Duty






Sexual Assault: Defined

Sexual Assault: The term "sexual assault" is defined as intention sexual contact characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. The term includes a broad category of sexual offenses consisting of the following specific Uniform Code of Military Justice offenses: rape, sexual, aggravated sexual contact, abusive sexual contact, forcible sodomy (forces oral or anal sex), or attempts to commit these acts.

Consent: "Consent" is defined as words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person. An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent. Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the one accuses use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent. There is no consent where the person is sleeping or incapacitated, such as due to age, alcohol or drugs, or mental incapacity.
