California Sex Offenses
California sex offenses fall under many different statutes and may be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies depending on the nature of the crime. Many of these crimes will result in mandatory sex offender registration if you are convicted. This registration will make your identity available as public access and can severely restrict where you live, job possibilities, and other factors of your life.
Examples of sex crimes include:
- Child pornography
- Statutory rape
- Lewd acts with a child
- Indecent exposure
- Sexual battery
- Lewd conduct in a public place
Depending on the type of crime you face, you could be looking at lengthy incarceration, fines, probation, and more.
