Aggravated – Any circumstances during the commission of a crime that increase its seriousness or the injury.
Child pornography –Any visual depiction, including any photograph, film, video, picture, or computer or computer-generated image or picture, whether made or produced by electronic, mechanical, or other means, of sexually explicit conduct.
Coercion – The use of force or threats of serious harm, including the use of physical restraint(s), against any person, intended to cause a person to do something against their will.
Forcible Sex Offenses – The act of forcible sexual intercourse with any person with some forcible compulsion to submit despite earnest resistance.
Mistake of Fact – An error, incorrect decision or assumption, or a misunderstanding caused by the ignorance or facts or circumstances. As it relates to statutory rape and several other federal sex crimes, it does not matter if the perpetrator did not know that the victim was below the age of consent.
Molestation – The crime of sexual acts with children up to the age of 18, including touching of private parts, exposure of genitalia, taking of pornographic pictures, rape, inducement of sexual acts with the molester or with other children.
Non-forcible Sex Offenses – Sexual acts with individuals who are not capable of giving consent to sexual acts. Determining factors to determine an individual’s incapability may vary from state to state, but federal laws generally include those who, at the time of the crime, were underage victims, those who were physically helpless, and those who are permanently mentally disabled or were temporarily mentally incompetent. Consent is not considered to be a valid defense to the crime.
Rape – Sexual intercourse without consent and accomplished through force, threat of violence or intimidation.
Rape Shield Laws – Laws enacted to protect victims from the emotional trauma of being questioned about their sexual history on the witness stand.
