Any attack against an unwilling individual that involves sexual intent or aggression is considered sexual assault. Most sexual assault charges are also paired with attempted rape accusations, which can cause the potential penalties to escalate. There are, however, nonviolent acts that can be considered sexual assault in Oklahoma, such as the act of sodomy. To avoid the vast legal repercussions of a sexual assault conviction, contact Tulsa sex crimes attorney Lee F. Berlin today to discuss your case and decide upon a proper course of action.
Consequences of a Conviction Can Continue Long After You Complete Your Sentence
Oklahoma law states that the penalty for sexual assault begins at a 30 days of incarceration and a $500 financial penalty. As sexual assault is a somewhat general term for a multitude of sex crimes, the punishments you could be facing if convicted are actually likely to be much more severe than the standard penalties. Much like most sex crime convictions, you will also likely have to register as a sex offender, which can destroy your reputation and cause you to lose your job.
