Sexual Assault and Battery

by Anna Morgan

Sexual assault is more common than one might think. Here are some facts on the matter:

  • the most common victim for sexual crimes is a woman between the age of 18 and 25
  • males are victims of sex crimes too
  • 84% percent of victims know their perpetrator
  • every two minutes, someone in America is sexually assaulted
Some ways to play it safe:

  • don't get in a situation (such as a party) that would give someone an opportunity to assault you
  • be very cautious when making decisions regarding another person or your relationship
  • do not consume alcohol, do drugs, or participate in anything that might compromise your capability to make decisions
