Since the entry into force of the Organic Law of Comprehensive Guarantee of Sexual Freedom, on the date of October 6, 2022, Organic Law 10/2022, there is no crime of sexual abuse as it was previously known in the Penal Code. With the new regulations, any act that threatens the freedom or sexual indemnity of a person carried out without their consent will constitute a crime of sexual assault. Therefore, in the event of conviction of the aggressor, the prison sentences would have to be more serious than the previous regulation. 

If the aggressor committed the crime of sexual abuse or sexual assault before October 6, 2022, the Penal Code prior to the current reform will apply. 

The new reform of the Penal Code, through the law "only Yes, it is Yes" on sexual assault and sexual abuse, broadens the catalog of crimes related to sexual freedom, including crimes against moral integrity, degrading treatment and hostile or humiliating acts towards the victim, crimes of sexual harassment, requests for favors of a sexual nature, and sending content of an intimate sexual nature to third parties.
