What does sexually touching a child under 10 mean?

The touching must be sexual and the victim must be under 10 years of age.

Sexual touching is defined as any touching that’s done with any part of the body, or with anything else. Therefore, it can be through clothing. In addition, it can be committed if the touching is with an object, rather than a “skin to skin” touch.

It’s also an offence to incite another to sexually touch the alleged victim, or to incite the alleged victim to touch you (or a third person).

Penalty for sexually touching a child under 10

The maximum penalty is 16 years imprisonment in NSW.

The court will impose a conviction. In addition, a term of imprisonment is likely. In order to reduce your sentence, it is important to present a strong subjective case.
