Domestic Sexual Abuse
Domestic abuse can be divided into many categories; it does not only refer to physical beatings. Sexual abuse is actually one of the most common types of domestic abuse, and it is often tied to both physical and emotional abuse. Domestic sexual abuse is a serious criminal charge, and the accusation alone can be sufficient to have a significant negative effect on your personal and professional lives.

Examples of Domestic Sexual Abuse
Domestic sexual abuse is a very broad categorization of offending sexual behaviors committed by one member of a household against another. Domestic sexual abuse can occur when a partner:
- Rapes his/her partner
- Criticizes sexual acts performed by his/her partner
- Turns his/her partner into a sexual object, for example by forcing them to dress a certain way
- Denies sexual attention or affection as a means of punishment or “to prove a point”
- Accuses his/her partner without reason of sexual activity with others
These are merely a few examples of sexual domestic abuse, but this kind of abuse can take many forms. Accordingly, you may find yourself up against potentially life-altering charges with little or no inclination that such a matter lies before you.
Being accused of a crime does not make you guilty. The compassionate San Jose criminal defense attorneys at the Law Office of Daniel Jensen, P.C., will work tirelessly to protect your rights and interests throughout your case. Contact us by calling (408) 296-4100 today.
