Common Sex Crimes Accusations in California

There are several different types of sex crime allegations that are brought forward. Here are some of the charges in California we most frequently work with clients on: 

  • Rape: The state of California defines rape is defined as non-consensual sexual intercourse accomplished by means of threats, force, or fraud. 
  • Child molestation: This involves any inappropriate touching of a minor.
  • Solicitation of a minor: Involving a minor in sexual activities, whether online or offline, can lead to severe legal consequences. 
  • Child pornography: Possessing, distributing, or producing explicit content involving minors is a grave offense. 
  • Indecent exposure or lewd acts: Engaging in public conduct for sexual gratification or to offend others can result in criminal charges.

Penalties for Sex Crime Convictions in California

Being convicted of a sex crime in California can have serious, life-altering consequences. These consequences extend beyond the immediate legal penalties and can seep into every corner of your life.

One of the most severe outcomes of a sex crime conviction is the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence. The duration varies depending on the nature and severity of the crime, but it’s not uncommon for these sentences to span several years or even decades.

Significant fines are often imposed as part of the legal penalties for sex crimes in California. The financial burden placed on convicted individuals and their families can lead to further hardship and stress.

Mandatory sex offender registration is another harsh consequence of a conviction. The requirement to register as a sex offender publicly labels you, making it difficult to find housing or employment, and impacting your ability to lead a normal life even after serving your sentence. 

If you’re a parent, a sex crime conviction might result in the loss of custody or visitation rights. This can strain family relationships and disrupt the lives of your children. In some cases, convicted defendants may lose all contact with their children, causing emotional trauma for all parties involved.
