What is Sexual Assault?

Sexual assault includes, but is not limited to, a sexual act directed against another person without the consent (as defined herein) of the other person or when that person is not capable of giving such consent. Sexual intimacy is permissible only if it is agreed to by all participants and all activity is affirmatively consensual at all times.

Sexual assault is further defined in sections 53a-70, 53a-70a, 53a-70b, 53a-71, 53a-72a, 53a-72b and 53a-73a of the Connecticut General Statutes.
