Indecent Assault is an offence under section 61L of the Crimes Act 1900 which applies to conduct before 1 December 2018, and carries a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:

‘Indecent’ means contrary to the ordinary standards of respectable people in the community, and must have a sexual connotation or overtone.
You were ‘reckless’ if you realised there was a possibility the other person was not consenting, but went ahead with your actions regardless.
