Among the types of sex crime cases that Kimberly Stover, Attorney at Law handles are:
Several laws prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. Sexual harassment can be broadly defined in two ways. The first is any unwanted sexual advance, especially if that advance includes any coercion such as threatening a person’s employment status or chances for advancement. The second is creating a hostile work environment, such as making untoward comments and jokes that make others uncomfortable in the workplace.
Sexual harassment charges can be complex, so you need a trusted criminal defense attorney to assess your situation and the circumstances surrounding the charge against you, and to develop a comprehensive plan for your defense.
Domestic violence is a category of crimes, rather than an individual charge. It can include crimes such as stalking, sexual assault, and rape, but also can include crimes like battery, spousal abuse, trespassing, and destruction of property. Some of these crimes are misdemeanors and some are felonies.
The common denominor for these crimes is that the accused and the alleged victim have or have previously had a domestic relationship. This could include spouses or ex-spouses, current or former live-in partners, parents, and even children.
Sexual Assault/ Sexual Battery
In Virginia, sexual assault is referred to as “Sexual Battery”. It is defined as “attempting to molest, arouse, or gratify” as person against their will. Generally this means unwelcome touching of intimate parts of the body, or of forcing a person to touch the perpetrators’ body parts with threats or intimidation.
A conviction for simple sexual battery in Virginia could net up to a year in prison and/or a fine of as much as $2,500.
Aggravated sexual battery is the same as simple sexual battery except that it is perpetrated on a person who is mentally or physically disabled in some way, a child under 13 years old, or a parent or grandparent. A person convicted of aggravated sexual battery faces a mandatory minimum sentence of a year in prison and the possibility of up to 20 years in prison.
The state of Virginia defines rape as any sexual intercourse that is against a person’s will, whether the person was forced physically to have intercourse or was forced by threat, intimidation or coertion through a threat to a third person. It also includes sexual intercourse with a person who is not in a position to give consent, such as a person who is mentally or physically incapacitateed, or is a child under the age of 13.
Punishment for a rape conviction in Virginia ranges from 5 years imprisonment to a life sentence depending on the circumstances.
