Sexual Assault Laws in California
According to the California Penal Code, sexual assault is the unwanted physical contact of another person’s “intimate parts.” Physical contact may include nonconsensual touching, kissing, touching, or rape. Some examples of sexual assault include:
- Nonconsensual sexual contact or intercourse
- Attempted rape
- Pressure or harassment to engage in sexual activity
California law recognizes sexual assault as when a victim is touched in their intimate parts without consent by their assaulter. Sexual assault occurs when the assaulter demonstrates a clear intention to seek sexual gratification, arousal, or abuse without the victim’s consent. Uber or rideshare sexual assault falls under the general umbrella of sexual assault and can be prosecuted accordingly.
Consent is defined as a clearly affirmed agreement to participate in sexual activity by all participants. Consent must be a verbal and affirmative agreement to engage in sexual activity. Only a clear “yes” is consent. Silence, “maybe,” or a lack of “no” is NOT consent. An individual cannot provide consent if they were intoxicated, unconscious, or otherwise incapacitated.
Taking Legal Action Against an Assaulter in an Uber
If you have experienced sexual assault related to rideshare services, you have the right to press charges. An experienced attorney from Her Lawyer is ready to support you throughout the legal process and fight for your rights. In order to prove a case of sexual assault, your lawyer will help you argue that:
- the rideshare driver touched the victim’s intimate parts without their consent
the rideshare driver intended to sexually assault the victim for the purpose of sexual gratification, arousal, or abuse.
The statute of limitations for sexual assault varies depending on the victim. Victims have up to 10 years after the last incident of assault or within 3 years of discovering an injury caused by the assault to file a lawsuit against their assaulter. If the dates are different, the later date of the two applies.
