Sexual assault is all over the news and for good reason. Not only is it illegal and wrong, but it can cause a lasting impact on the victim’s life. Hollywood and the Greater Los Angeles has had far too many #metoo moments. From Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey, not to mention Trump, brave women and men are taking a stand and fighting back against their abusers.

Types of Sexual Assault

Sexual assault can include:

  • Any non-consensual touch or contact
  • When someone uses a position of power to coerce a sexual encounter or relationship
  • When someone uses the threat of violence to coerce a sexual encounter or relationship
  • Verbal or written sexual advances or suggestions
  • Consensual encounters that continue after you’ve said “stop” or “no”
  • And many others
