Nevada Revised Statutes: Sexual Assault “A person who subject another person to sexual penetration, or who forces another person to make a sexual penetration on himself or another, against the victim’s will or under conditions in which the perpetrator knows or should know that the victim is mentally or physically incapable of resisting or understanding the nature of his conduct, is guilty of sexual assault”
What IS consent? Sexual assault is a broader category that the Justice Department uses to classify rape, attempted rape and other violent felonies that fall short of rape. Consent? Mentally Unable? Physically Unable?
What is consent? Both parties are fully conscious. Both parties have equal ability to act. Both parties are positive and sincere in their desires. Both parties have clearly communicated their intent.
