Full Answer

The crime of gross sexual imposition entails the forced sexual contact between two or more people, none of which are the offender. One example of such conduct would be forcing someone to engage in prostitution. To accomplish this, the offender may use, or threaten to use, force or intentionally impair the victim's judgment. Drugging a victim, or waiting until their judgment is impaired by the use of drugs or alcohol, then forcing or coercing them into sexual contact with a third party is another example of gross sexual imposition. Additionally, forcing or coercing a person who is physically or mentally disabled to engage in sexual contact constitutes gross sexual imposition.
