----------------------

Many statutes, including New Hampshire's, now define sexual assault as nonconsensual sexual penetration by physical force, by threat of bodily harm, or when the victim is incapable of giving consent by virtue of mental illness or intoxication. Legally, acquaintance rape carries the same penalties as sexual assault committed by a stranger.

New Hampshire Law on Sexual Assault: RSA 632 [link: NH RSA 632}

Examples of Sexual Assault:

  • Unwanted sexual touching
  • Forcing sex on an unwilling partner
  • Demanding sexual acts that the partner does not want to perform
  • Hurtful sexual acts

Sexual Assault is non-consensual sex. It does not matter if the two people are...

  • Married
  • Living together
  • Dating

Sexual Activity that is non-consensual is AGAINST THE LAW.
