Forcible Sexual Abuse Under Utah Code § 76-5-404
A person is guilty of committing forcible sexual abuse if the victim was 14 years of age or older at the time of offense and in circumstances not amounting to rape, object rape, sodomy, or attempted rape or sodomy. This criminal offense occurs when the actor touches the breast of a female, anus, buttocks, or genitals of another person, or takes indecent liberties with the actor of another, with intent to cause substantial emotional or bodily pain to any person or with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person, without the consent of the other, regardless of the sex of any participant.
Forcible sexual abuse is a second degree felony offense, punishable by between 1 and 15 years imprisonment. However, if it is found that the defendant caused serious bodily injury to another person during the offense, the punishment is between 15 years and life imprisonment.
