Charges of Aggravated Sexual Assault in Sydney

Understanding the charges of Aggravated Sexual Assault is crucial in any legal defence. According to the Crimes Act, "circumstances of aggravation" can significantly impact the case. Key considerations include:

  • Infliction of Bodily Harm: The accused inflicted or threatened to inflict bodily harm during or surrounding the offence.

  • Involvement of Others: The presence of accomplices during the crime.

  • Vulnerability of the Victim: Including victims under 16, those with physical or cognitive impairments, or under the authority of the accused.

  • Breaking: The offence involved breaking into a dwelling with intent.

  • Deprivation of Liberty: The victim was unlawfully detained before or after the crime.

  • Consent Complexity: Establishing a lack of consent involves understanding the victim's capacity and opportunity to consent, including cases of intoxication, coercion, or abuse of power.

Penalties for Aggravated Sexual Assault

In NSW, the penalties for Aggravated Sexual Assault are severe, reflecting the gravity of the crime. While sexual assault under Section 61I carries a 14-year maximum penalty, this escalates to 20 years under aggravating circumstances. The majority of convictions lead to custodial sentences, underscoring the critical need for experienced legal representation in these cases
