Sex crimes occur when individuals impose their will on another through threats and intimidation or physical force in order to achieve a measure of sexual stimulation. California state laws have made illegal a variety of sexual acts such as sexual battery, child molestation, child pornography, rape, prostitution, sexual conduct with a minor and many others. When facing any charge related to a sex crime, enlisting the services of a skilled attorney is critical to the success of your case.
When a person commits a sex crime, he or she can expect harsh penalties such as time in jail or prison, fines, probation, and mandatory registration as a sex offender. Even an accusation can ruin a person’s reputation and their future. Having to register as a sex offender is no small matter. California Department of Justice is responsible for maintaining the registered sex offender database; per Megan’s Law, they provide the public with access to detailed information on registered sex offenders. While Megan’s law is not intended to punish those convicted of sex crimes, once you are convicted of a sex crime, your contact information and the details of your crime will be made public and your whereabouts will be tracked for the rest of your life.
