Sexual Assault Lawyer Scarborough

According to nationwide statistics, all forms of violent crime are on the decline in Canada, except for sexual assault. Anyone of any gender, age, culture, or socioeconomic status can be the victim of sexual assault. This crime can be perpetrated in private spaces or public places; in fact, across the country, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 8 men have been subjected to unwanted sexual behaviour in public.

In order to understand the full scope of the issue, it is important to dispel common myths about sexual assault. For example, many people believe that sexual assault is mostly perpetrated by unknown assailants against random or targeted victims who have no pre-existing relationship with their abuser. Although strangers in Scarborough have most certainly sexually assaulted victims who were previously unknown to them, the overwhelming majority of sexual assault cases are perpetrated by people who are personally acquainted with their victims. In fact, the most common pepeptrators of sexual assault are:

  • Romantic partners
  • Dates
  • Co-workers
  • Friends
  • Spouses
  • Common law partners
  • Neighbours
  • Acquaintances 
  • Colleagues
  • Customers
  • And more

The term “sexual assault” does not only apply to acts of physical violence. It is, rather, an umbrella term that includes any form of unwanted, non-consensual sexual attention or harrassment. This might include unwanted touching, forced kissing, inappropriate comments, verbal abuse, and other forms of behaviour that are sexual in nature and take place without the express consent of all parties involved. 

Consent is an active agreement that can evolve throughout the course of a sexual encounter. As such, consent is revocable. A partner involved in a sexual activity with someone else can revoke their consent at any time for any reason. If a person withdraws their consent during a sexual encounter but their romantic partner refuses to listen, they have committed sexual assault. 

When a perpetrator of sexual assault engages in non-consensual sexual activity with another person, they rob their victim of the control they should have over their own body. Being violated in this manner can cause survivors of sexual assault to develop severe mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, and possibly more.

In order to cope with the resulting psychological issues developed in the aftermath of a sexual violation, survivors of sexual assault are often forced to go to great expense and often incur substantial financial losses. These are often related to psychiatric treatment, counseling, prescriptions, lost wages due to missed work, and more.
