10. Um... NO!

 

Although your statistic might be correct, (I don't know), but the mathematical method would not apply.

The birthday paradox method describes a randomness of (one in 365),(one in 364) etc.

Actionable sexual assault can be committed by one party multiple times, so there is no one in 365 formula to apply.
