sexual consent

Sex crimes all come down to consent. In a sexual encounter where consent is not agreed upon by both parties, the act becomes a criminal offense. When an offender forces another person to sexually act against his or her will, there is no consent. Furthermore, consent is incapable when the the victim is found to have a diminished mental capacity to consent. This state of mind can be found when an individual is a minor, disabled, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Contact a distinguished professional for details and a free consultation.
