Criminal Sexual Contact – N.J.S.A. 2C:14-3

According to N.J.S.A. 2C:14-3(a), an actor is guilty of aggravated criminal sexual contact if he commits an act of sexual contact with the victim under any circumstances set forth in N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2(a)(2) through (7). Those circumstances focus on the age of the victim, the relationship between the actor and the victim, use of force, and injuries suffered by the victim. In other situations, N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2(b) sets forth that an actor is guilty of criminal sexual contact if he commits an act of sexual contact with the victim under any of the circumstances set forth in N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2(c)(1) through (4), which set forth different parameters than aggravated criminal sexual contact. Under the New Jersey Criminal Code, sexual contact is defined at N.J.S.A. 2C:14-1(d) and means an intentional touching by the victim or actor, either directly or through clothing, of the victim’s or actor’s intimate parts for the purpose of degrading or humiliating the victim or sexually arousing or sexually gratifying the actor. Sexual contact of the actor with himself must be in view of the victim whom the actor knows to be present. N.J.S.A. 2C:14-1(e) defines intimate parts as sexual organs, genital area, anal area, inner thigh, groin, buttock or breast.

Pursuant to the criminal code, aggravated criminal sexual contact is a crime of the third degree and criminal sexual contact is a crime of the fourth degree. The general penalties for a third degree crime include three to five years in prison and up to at $15,000 fine and for a fourth degree crime up to eighteen months in prison and up to at $10,000 fine. However, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact in cases where the victim is a minor are considered Megan’s Law offenses pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:7-2(b) that requires registration as a sex offender. Additionally, criminal sexual contact imposes enhanced financial penalties under N.J.S.A. 2C:14-10: $750 when the conviction is a crime of the third degree and $500 when the conviction is a crime of the fourth degree.
