What is Gross Sexual Imposition?
The Ohio Revised Code defines Gross Sexual Imposition in R.C. 2907.05:
“(A) No person shall have sexual contact with another, not the spouse of the offender; cause another, not the spouse of the offender, to have sexual contact with the offender; or cause two or more other persons to have sexual contact when any of the following applies:
(1) The offender purposely compels the other person, or one of the other persons, to submit by force or threat of force."
The Ohio Revised Code goes on to list other instances in which it can be charged as well. However, the prosecution must prove "sexual contact" with another along with "force or threat of force". Typically, the allegation is that unwanted sexual touching has occurred.
