Criminal Sexual Contact and DCPP in NJ
Being convicted of criminal sexual contact in New Jersey means that the defendant is guilty of committing acts of sexual contact with the victim and the defendant has used physical force or coercion but the victim has not received a severe personal injury. If the defendant has purposely touched themselves in an intimate region while in the view of another person who the defendant knew was there, that also constitutes as criminal sexual contact.
In order to be proven guilty, the touching must have been intentional, and the court must be given proof beyond a reasonable doubt that it was intentional. If the touching was found to be done intentionally with the purpose of degrading or humiliating the victim, or the defendant was sexually aroused or received a gratifying feeling from it, then they will most likely be found guilty of criminal sexual contact.
