Sexual Assault of Minor Child

Sexual Assault of Minor Child

Sexual abuse is a highly sensitive subject that is neither easy to discuss nor acknowledge. The toughest part of a child sexual abuse charge for the State may be proving it, especially if the child is the only witness. There may be a lack of physical or other corroborating evidence. The effects last for life and can affect future relationships. On the other hand, charges for child sexual abuse can also be unfounded, often made by rebellious or coached children.

Either way, Wisconsin’s laws are strict and it takes a criminal defense lawyer with the expertise and an understanding of the various facets of the law related to sexual assault of a minor child to provide the necessary representation.

What is child sexual assault?

When a child is sexually abused or exploited by another person, it amounts to child sexual assault. Child sexual assault involves sexual intercourse involving oral, vaginal, anal penetration, or contact with these areas or contact by a child with the defendant’s sexual organs.

  • Within a family, it can be in the form of incest, either in a single instance or repeatedly.
  • Sexual offenses related to touching include fondling, forcing the child to touch the adult’s sexual parts or penetrating the child’s vagina or anus.
  • Non-touching instances involve indecent exposure, exhibitionism, pornography, or involving the child in child pornography.

A charge of child sexual assault needs to be handled delicately and professionally.
