What constitutes a sexual offence?

The term sexual offence covers a variety of specific offences including rape, sexual assault, offences against children and the possession and distribution of indecent images. The police should always be very specific about which type of sexual offence you are being accused of.

What is the Sexual Offences Act?

Most sexual offences are defined in the Sexual Offences Act 2003, which came into force on 1st May 2004. The Sexual Offences Act 2003 consolidated previous legislation to update and strengthen the law.

What are the main types of sexual offences?

  • Rape– It is an offence for a male to penetrate with his penis a male or female in the vagina, anus or mouth without their consent. Rape carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
  • Assault by Penetration– it is an offence to penetrate the vagina or anus of another person without their consent, using a part of the body or anything else, for sexual intent.
  • Sexual Assault– It is an offence to intentionally touch another person sexually, without their consent. Sexual assault carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
  • Causing sexual activity without consent– It is an offence to cause or encourage another to engage in sexual activity without their consent.
