Sexual assault involves any non-consensual sexual activity, including forced sexual acts, unwanted touching, and coercion. The legal system treats this crime with extreme seriousness, imposing severe penalties such as long prison sentences, hefty fines, and mandatory sex offender registration. 

For immigrants, a sexual assault charge can have particularly harsh consequences. It can easily jeopardize immigration status and potentially lead to deportation.

Convictions for sexual assault are considered serious crimes, which can lead to deportation or removal proceedings. 

The charges can also make you ineligible for visas, green cards, and naturalization, potentially resulting in detention and mandatory registration as a sex offender.
