Aggravated indecent assault is a more serious type of indecent assault that includes particular aggravating circumstances such as penetration of any portion of the victim’s body.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) outlined the brief facts of the matter as follows:   The woman was not charged with rape because that particular crime involves the penetration of a woman by a man.

The equivalent crime where a woman forces a man to have intercourse with her is aggravated indecent assault, which carries the same penalty as rape.

The Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act [Chapter 9:23] defines aggravated indecent assault in Section 66 (1) (b).
