This may be done by the district attorney, who will decide if there is enough evidence to bring charges.

What Is Sexual Assault?
Many people are unaware that the majority of sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the victim. Sexual abuse is defined as the willful or intentional touching of the genitalia, anus, groin, breast, inner thigh, buttocks, or buttocks of another person without the consent of that person. Sexual abuse may be nonconsensual, or it may be consensual. It is a crime in the state of Pennsylvania. The perpetrator may be a friend, relative, acquaintance, teacher, employer, babysitter, coach, priest, or other person who has some type of power or authority over the victim.
An assault may be committed without any contact between the two persons. If there is contact, the force used to commit the assault may be enough to cause serious bodily injury or death.
