Section 293. Aggravated sexual assault

Aggravated sexual assault is punishable by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 21 years. The same applies if the offender has previously been convicted of acts specified in sections 291, 294 or 299.
In determining whether the sexual assault is aggravated, particular weight shall be given to whether
  1. a.
    it was committed by multiple persons acting together,
  2. b.
    it was committed in a particularly painful or offensive manner, or
  3. c.
    the aggrieved person died or suffered considerable harm to his/her body or health as a result of the act. A sexually transmitted disease is always considered considerable harm to someone's body or health pursuant to this section.
