Sexual assault is defined in N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2 to include sexual penetration against the victim’s will. Sexual assault and rape are the same crime in New Jersey.
Sexual assault charges can be established if the prosecution proves one of the following:
Sexual assault charges can also be aggravated–made more serious–based on the circumstances. For example, if the victim was seriously injured or a deadly weapon was involved, the charges might be aggravated to a more serious felony offense.
Additional aggravating factors in sexual assault cases can be based on:
Rape is a second-degree criminal offense in New Jersey. Aggravated sexual assault can be charged as a first-degree felony offense–the most serious type of indictable offense in New Jersey.
Regardless of the circumstances, sexual assault charges should always be taken very seriously. Make no mistake–New Jersey prosecutors will do everything in their power to punish the defendant to the fullest extent of the law. You need a hard-hitting, battle-tested criminal defense lawyer to convey your side of the story.

Deciding whether to accept a plea bargain is a big decision. A plea bargain might seem like getting off easy, but in reality, you have to remember that it requires you to admit guilt. Admitting that you’re guilty of any type of sex crime–even one “less” serious than sexual assault–can have far-reaching consequences.
That said, if the prosecution’s case against you is strong, a plea bargain can work to your advantage. At Team Law, we make sure you understand every option on the table. That includes the possibility of a plea deal. Deciding is up to you–we make sure you have all the information and options possible. Our lawyers are always ready to fiercely advocate at trial if you so choose.
The public defender provides a valuable service. That said, the public defender is also usually overworked. They may be more likely to push you into accepting a plea deal just to get your case off their desk. Public defenders also lack the substantial resources our attorneys have available to investigate your case–and a detailed investigation can be key to a not guilty verdict in sexual assault cases.
Lawyers can be expensive. However, an experienced defense lawyer is also your best chance at acquittal. Our defense lawyers at Team Law are always willing to discuss options. Call us today to learn more.
