What is sexual assault?
The Department of Defense defines sexual assault as:
Intentional sexual contact characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent.
The term includes a board category of sexual offenses consisting of the following specific UCMJ offenses: rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact, abusive sexual contact, forcible sodomy (forced oral or anal sex), or attempts to commit these acts.
What is Consent?
a freely given agreement to the conduct at issue by a competent person.
An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent. Lack of verbal or physical resistance of submission resulting from the use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent.
A current or previous dating, or social sexual relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the conduct at issue shall not constitute consent.
A sleeping, unconscious, or incompetent person cannot consent.
