What is the definition of “sexual assault”?
Sexual Assault is criminal conduct that falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform and is a violation of our Air Force Core Values. Sexual Assault is defined 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 broad 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 offenses. Consent is words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual 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 or submission resulting from the accused's use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent. A sleeping, unconscious, or incompetent person cannot consent. It is a crime to commit a sexual act or sexual contact on a person who is incapable of consenting due to impairment by alcohol or drugs.
Is sexual assault considered criminal conduct?
Sexual assault is a crime. Regardless of the eligibility to be able to make an unrestricted or restricted report, everyone (civilian or military), regardless of nationality or military affiliation have the ability to report a sexual assault or other criminal activity to Air Force OSI. When in doubt, ask a SARC. We can help.
