What Constitutes Sexual Abuse In the State Of Maryland?

In the state of Maryland, sexual abuse is defined under several statutes, depending on the specific nature of the act. Here are some of the key categories:

  • Sexual Offense: Maryland law outlines multiple degrees of sexual offenses, each involving non-consensual sexual acts. This can range from touching someone's intimate parts for sexual arousal (fourth degree) to engaging in a sexual act using force or threat of force (first degree).

  • Rape: In Maryland, rape is classified as engaging in vaginal intercourse with another person by force or threat of force without the consent of the other person. Rape also occurs when the victim is mentally or physically incapacitated or if the victim is a minor.

  • Child Sexual Abuse: According to Maryland law, child sexual abuse refers to any act that involves sexual molestation or exploitation of a minor by a parent or other individual who has permanent or temporary care or custody or responsibility for supervision of a minor. This can include, but is not limited to, incest, rape, or sexual offense in any degree, sodomy, and unnatural or perverted sexual practices.

  • Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

  • Institutional Sexual Abuse: This applies when individuals in positions of authority in institutional settings, such as schools, workplaces, or care facilities, commit sexual offenses against individuals in their care.

Remember, these definitions are simplified explanations and each category has more specific details outlined in the law. If you believe you've been a victim of any form of sexual abuse, it is strongly recommended to consult with a knowledgeable sexual abuse lawyer who can provide guidance based on your specific situation.
