What Are Sex Crimes?
The label “sex crimes” covers any type of criminal activity that is sexually related. These are generally offenses in which the alleged offender has engaged without the consent and against the will of the stated victim.
These crimes can include but are not limited to:
- Indecent exposure
- Lewd conduct
- Lewd acts with a child
- Child sexual abuse
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Possession of child pornography
- Rape, statutory rape, and date rape
- Online sex crimes
What Are the Consequences of a Sex Crime?
Penalties depend on the type of crime for which you have been convicted, if it has been charged at the state or federal level, the type of victim involved, whether a serious injury was inflicted, your prior criminal history, if any, and any other important circumstances, such as if a weapon was used.
How Does Sex Offender Registration Work?
Aside from incarceration, fines, and extended probation periods, you may have to register as a sex offender at California’s Megan’s Law website. This registration is built on a three-tiered system that requires registration for 10 years, 20 years, or your lifetime, depending on the circumstances. You will be required to keep law enforcement informed of your address annually. Your name, photo, identifying characteristics, and the offense for which you were convicted will be available on the website for public access.
