Plea to Assault, Instead of Sexual Assault – No jail


CC: s.271 – Sexual Assault


My client sexually assaulted a woman at a party by pushing her back into the bathroom when she was trying to exit, closing the door behind them and then forcing his hands down her pants.


After a Preliminary Inquiry, my client tendered a plea of guilty to simple assault, instead of sexual assault, and received a probationary sentence. No jail.
