    This report wasn’t proofread well. It has misspellings and incorrect word usage.

  • Skeptical

    What’s “late” sexual battery?

    The least you could expect of a sexual batterer is punctuality.

  • Crimestopper

    I’m so tired of political correctness and weasel words. If someone was slapped on the ass they should say they were slapped on the ass….not sexual battery. People are so sensitive.

    • Skeptical

      It isn’t a “weasel word,” it’s a legal term. The state’s criminal Code has to categorize offenses in order to assign penalties according to their gravity, and sexual battery covers a breadth of offenses:

      § 18.2-67.4. Sexual battery.

      A. An accused is guilty of sexual battery if he sexually abuses, as defined in § 18.2-67.10, (i) the complaining witness against the will of the complaining witness, by force, threat, intimidation, or ruse…

      Here is the definition referenced:

      6. “Sexual abuse” means an act committed with the intent to sexually molest, arouse, or gratify any person, where:

      a. The accused intentionally touches the complaining witness’s intimate parts or material directly covering such intimate parts;

      b. The accused forces the complaining witness to touch the accused’s, the witness’s own, or another person’s intimate parts or material directly covering such intimate parts;

      c. If the complaining witness is under the age of 13, the accused causes or assists the complaining witness to touch the accused’s, the witness’s own, or another person’s intimate parts or material directly covering such intimate parts; or

      d. The accused forces another person to touch the complaining witness’s intimate parts or material directly covering such intimate parts…

      B. Sexual battery is a Class 1 misdemeanor.

      It’s not political correctness, it’s a way to categorize and define acts that are sexual and invasive short of rape, and deserve penalty. The code of Virginia would be quite cumbersome if we had categories like

      § 18.2-67.467 Slapping on the ass.
      § 18.2-67.468 Crotch grab.
      § 18.2-67.469 Booby squeeze.

      …you could take it up with Richmond, I suppose.

    Putting your hand on someone’s shoulder is “assault & battery”? Yikes.
