Penalties for Aggravated Sexual Assault

Aggravated sexual assault is considered a lesser charge than rape; however, the penalties can still be severe. Due to the numerous aggravated sexual assault reports that have been filed over the years, these crimes are heavily prosecuted, especially if there is a child involved.

If you are convicted of aggravated sexual assault, you could face:

  • Up to 30 years in confinement
  • Forfeiture of all military pay and allowances
  • Dishonorable discharge from your rank or military branch

In addition, if you are convicted and must return to life in the civilian sector, you could face difficulty finding employment due to your record. It’s important to get a trusted San Diego aggravated sexual assault defense attorney on your case as soon as possible to fight these allegations and mitigate the impact they could have on your future.
