Teen Girls Charged with Sexual Assault

Several teen girls have been charged with crimes due to an alleged sexual assault in Northampton County. These teens were charged with animate object sexual penetration, aggravated sexual battery, attempted animate object sexual penetration, and sexual battery. The charges stem from an incident that allegedly occurred in August, while the girls were arrested on Oct. 22. These charges are very serious and require the attention of a Fairfax Criminal Attorney right away.

Fairfax Criminal Attorney on Object Sexual Penetration

One of the charges these teens face, animate object sexual penetration, is one of the most serious sex crimes in Virginia. The maximum penalty for this crime is potentially life in prison, so someone charged with this crime needs an experienced Fairfax Criminal Attorney. This crime involves penetration with the finger or another part of the human body. A similar charge, inanimate object sexual penetration, would involve penetration with a foreign object.

The punishments for this crime are incredibly severe. A conviction of this carries with it, in the lightest, a five year mandatory minimum sentence. If there are aggravating circumstances, such as the victim was under 13, it carries with it a sentence of life in prison. An aggressive lawyer can fight these charges and help the defendant through this difficult time.
