As per Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, you have the right to remain silent upon your arrest. Section 7 of the Charter protects your autonomy and legal rights from government actions and operates on the principle that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. If this right is disregarded by the arresting officer, the testimony obtained under such circumstances may be disregarded by the judge during the trial. The process of representing oneself in court is notoriously difficult due to the complexities of legal proceedings. One of the major challenges is a lack of understanding of how the trial and negotiations will unfold. Representing oneself in court often results in the loss of the opportunity for effective negotiations to resolve or withdraw the case, as the absence of a third party, such as a legal attorney. Self-representation also leads to a biased perspective since personal emotions can cloud judgment and hinder effective negotiation. Sexual assault encompasses a range of unwanted sexual activities including touching of a sexual nature, rape sexual exploitation or interference and more.
The Supreme Court of Canada determines if an act constitutes as sexual assault by the nature of:
The body part touched
The nature of the touch on that specific body part
The intention of the accused
Whether there was sexual gratification involved
Any accompanying words or gestures
The context in which the act took place
Any other surrounding circumstances.
