Sentencing for sexual assault works as follows:

age of the victim and the extent of the assault.
- If the victim was physically helpless, drugged, or mentally or physically

retaliation or are a law enforcement officer, you can be charged with
a first degree felony.
If you are charged with a felony in the first degree, you can face up to
30 years in state prison and / or a fine up to $10,000. You can face heightened
penalties if the crime of sexual assault resulted in serious bodily injury.
