Sexual Assault is governed by Section 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003:

  1. A person (A) commits an offence if—
    1. he intentionally touches another person (B);
    2. the touching is sexual;
    3. B does not consent to the touching; and
    4. A does not reasonably believe that B consents.
  2. Whether a belief is reasonable is to be determined having regard to all the circumstances, including any steps A has taken to ascertain whether B consents.
  3. Sections 75 and 76 apply to an offence under this section.
