Sexual abuse includes victimization by criminal sexual conduct, solicitation, inducement or promotion of prostitution, as defined in Minnesota criminal laws. Sexual abuse further includes any sexual contact or penetration by a facility staff person or a person providing services in the facility and a resident, patient, or client of that facility.
Sexual elder abuse is contact with an elderly person without the elder’s consent. Such contact can involve physical sex acts, but activities such as showing an elderly person pornographic material, forcing the person to watch sex acts, or forcing the elder to undress are also considered sexual elder abuse.
