What is Sexual Imposition?
Sexual imposition is the act of sexually offensive physical touching when a victim is impaired. Gross sexual imposition involves unwanted touching of the genitals, in erogenous areas such as the inner thigh or pubic region when a person is impaired. This touching is accompanied by force or the threat of force. Sexual imposition may come into play when a victim is in an impaired state due to excessive drinking at an office party or being given drugs without knowledge at an employer-sponsored event.
Are There Laws That Protect Against Sexual Imposition?
Sexual imposition is a type of physical conduct considered sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination. Employees are protected against discrimination due to submission to or rejection of unwanted sexual advances or misconduct by the Illinois Human Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964. Depending on the circumstances, it can be considered a criminal offense. Attorney Ross J. Peters can assemble a legal team to cover all of your bases as needed to represent you fully in a sexual imposition case, covering both civil and criminal matters.
