Sometimes the areas of civil law and criminal law overlap. For example, if you’re a victim of stalking, sexual assault or other relationship violence, you may choose to seek a civil Order of Protection, whether there is a criminal case or not. See Orders of Protection. It’s important to understand how broad sexual assault is. Forms of sexual assault can include such behaviors as unwanted touching to the intimate parts of someone or intentionally causing this person to touch one’s intimate parts. If this happens, call OIE, the Office of Institutional Equity/Title IX, at 575-646-3635, https://eeo.nmsu.edu/ and also the NMSU police department to report the crime.
