At Forcam Lawyers we are specialized in prosecuting crimes against sexual assault, gender violence and injuries. We are speaking, therefore, of crimes of considerable seriousness, usually punished with prison sentences.
We make every effort to achieve reparation for the victim or, at least, to avoid the feeling of helplessness. We demand the criminal responsibility of the offender in the Courts and Tribunals of all Spain.
Injury crimes include those conducts that result in bodily or psychological harm to the victim. Depending on the concurrent circumstances, its severity and associated penalty may differ. In any case, we can help you prevent any type of injury from going unpunished.
Crimes of sexual assault and sexual abuse
The crimes of sexual assault and sexual abuse include conduct that threatens freedom and sexual indemnity. They can be committed in public or trusted spaces, and also through social networks. Our lawyers have the necessary experience to carry out complaints and criminal trials of sexual assaults and injuries in Spain, in addition we protect the victims who suffer this kind of sexual abuse.
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.
