Legal Information

The laws defining sexual crimes are different in the different countries of the UK. If you were sexually violated, the exact laws that apply to you depend on the country in which the event took place. So, for example, if you are English but the event took place while on holiday in Scotland, your case would be subject to the Scottish legal system.
