SEXUAL ASSAULT (LGBTQ)

Written by Tana Carpenter. Posted in Domestic Violence and Law

Sexual assault occurs when you have sexual contact to which you didn’t agree. You are entitled to an advocate if you are sexually assaulted. BRAVO can help. Also, you or your insurance company cannot be required to pay for your rape examination kit (see http://codes. ohio.gov/orc/2907.28) and you cannot be forced to participate in a polygraph (see: http://codes.ohio. gov/orc/2907.10). You also have specific legal rights to privacy under Ohio law (see http://codes.ohio/gove/orc/2907.11). You are also entitled to request HIV testing of the accused and get the test results (see: http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2907.27).
