Sexual Assaults

Any person who unlawfully and indecently assaults another person is guilty of a crime. This includes procuring another person to commit those acts, or to witness those acts.

The maximum penalty is generally 10 years imprisonment. However, if the act includes bringing any genitalia or anus in contact with the mouth of a person, the defendant may be imprisoned for up to 14 years. Furthermore, the defendant may be imprisoned for life if the offender is, or pretends to be, armed with a weapon, or is in company with any other person. They may also be sentenced to life imprisonment where the assaulted person penetrates the offender’s vagina, vulva or anus to any extent with a thing or part of the person’s body.
